    I want to scrap the term "Big Data" and introduce Tall Data; pick your vertical and pick the best tools to solve the problem from top down (answers in form of insight/visualization, algorithms, DB/storage, data gathering)

    Data analysts are the new gold-diggers? Then the "digital shovel"-makers will be making the big money.

    • Valentina C.

      Hi Sally, any slides usually presented in the pitch? For 2 minutes probably there is no time but worth knowing in advance what is the usual practice.

      June 25, 2013

    • Sally H.

      no slides needed. Just a quick pitch to the audience talking about BigStep :)
