How Big Business Tackles Big Data Challenges – Online Panel

  • March 18, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • eBay Israel

Learn from some of the biggest companies worldwide - Paypal, Nice, Insightera, Wix, GigaSpaces and more - how they're tackling their big data business challenges in a joint online event by the IGTCloud and the California-Israel Chamber of Commerce (CICC).

The panel will cover topics on the business challenges involved in offering Big Data services. The panel will include companies who offer Big Data as well as those who use Big Data analysis to measure and optimize their business. 

Among the topics that we will be covering in this panel are:
- How do you manage your Big Data to serve your business goals;
- How do you create meaningful insights?
- When do you charge? When to offer a premium service? How do you cover the infrastructure cost, etc?
- What are the organizational changes that you need to implement to take advantage of Big Data? Is there a set of new roles? What is the type of skill set that is required and what is the average ramp-up time?
- What are the operational challenges in managing Big Data ?

As this is an open panel discussion, please feel free to send us a list of topics that are of an interest to you ahead of time so we can make sure we address them.

    Interesting survey Indicating that Big data can help companies' revenue by 25%

    Telecommunications (67%), consumer goods (57%) and financial services (52%) industries are leaders in recognizing that big data can greatly improve their understanding of customer needs. However, more than 60% of the firms in the financial services and consumer goods industries haven't started any big data programs. Healthcare and life science are lagging further behind; 72% of them haven't started any big data programs.
