Too much too soon or too little too late? Why Big Data matters?

Speaker topics:

1. Who benefits from Big Data?

2. What are the economics of Big Data: should we spend thousands to answer $5 questions?

3. What are the best (and worse) use-cases for Big Data?

Anyone interested in speaking on one or more of these topics or if you know an expert who would like to speak please send me an email with an outline and/or contact info.
