Big Data. You’ve hear of it. You know it’s important, but exactly what is it and how is it best used?

Big Data is all about bringing Value to business. A strategic approach to Big Data is necessary to achieve Agility in business – speed and accuracy of decision-making.

Fortunately you can learn all about this in a briefing from USF Sarasota-Manatee professor Dr. Unhelkar, an accomplished expert working here in our Tampa Bay area. Dr. Unhelkar will give us an overview of his new book “Big Data Strategies for Agile Business (CRC Press, 2018).” It describes a robust, research-based Big Data Framework for Agile Business. It focuses on the utilization of Big Data in an effective and efficient manner using enabling technologies such as the Hadoop eco-system and key Analytics such as Sentiment, Predictive, and NPS.

DATA SCIENTISTS - This is a great opportunity for those already working in data science to meet and interact with one of the key influencers.
