A goal of BigDataWeek is to understand where the industry is today so we can help serve it better in the future. We've pulled together a 5 question survey - please spend a minute to complete it and we'll send you the summary of the analysis we gather from across the globe.
Bonus! Take part in a Twitter Q&A with the CTO of the United States
We're excited to announce that the U.S. Chief Technology Officer and Assistant to the President, Todd Park (Todd Park), will be hosting a live Twitter Q&A on Tuesday at 7pm.
