Big Data for Big Decision Makers

Harry Blount, Founder & CEO, DISCERN
In conversation with Angie Coiro


$10.00/$5.00 for members

The 30-year old spreadsheet is no match for the tsunami of information available today; yet it remains the primary tool for decision-makers. By discussing real customer use cases, CEO Harry Blount will demonstrate how The Personal Analytics Cloud (PAC) is able to leverage the aggregation capabilities and the processing power of the cloud to deliver personalized signals for today’s executive decision makers.

Harry Blount is the CEO and Founder of DISCERN, Inc., a cloud-based, big data analytics company that delivers signals as a service to decision-makers. Prior to founding DISCERN, Harry spent more than 20 years on Wall Street, including senior roles at Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse First Boston, Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette, and CIBC Oppenheimer. Harry has been named an Institutional Investor All-American in both Information Technology Hardware and Internet Infrastructure Services, and The Wall Street Journal has recognized him as an All-Star covering the Computer Hardware sector.

    Hi, Not sure if everyone received other message. The Speaking of War panel took place on March 10. That was the only date for that lecture. Sorry for the confusion. Hope to see you in April.
