For the past 50 years, decision-making has been driven by backwards-looking data warehouses. Today  new technologies have redefined the way data is stored, analyzed, and consumed. Big data analytics provide critical new insights from previously untapped sources, allowing business to predict changes in customers, competitors, and market conditions—and exploit them.

Big Data Analytics…

  • Brings new information to support decisions
  • Replaces hierarchical decision-making with data-driven prediction
  • Combines enterprise and external data sources to discover new insights

Big Data Analytics Tokyo brings together business managers, CEOs and visionary innovators to chart the course of this massive shift.

They’ll elaborate on the technologies, techniques, and approaches that are now essential elements of digital strategy: pervasive data collection, advanced text/image analytics, open source and open data, agile operation, data lakes, machine learning, human/computer collaboration and cognitive computing. You’ll also learn about the critical changes organizations need to make—structurally and culturally—to stay in front.

The agenda includes remarkable keynotes, case studies, demonstrations, one-on-one collaborations, plus a state-of-the-art technology showcase…
