What we're about
The KW Big Data peer to peer is an ideas exchange in the space of big data and analytics, addressing both strategic and technical perspectives in analytics, as well as related areas of interest such as machine learning, business intelligence and visualizations. The group provides and participates in keynotes, panels, workshops, tutorials and the like, to encourage learning and innovation in the space of big data, analytics and related areas of interest.
The group runs two tracks – a strategic and a technical track. The Strategic Track focuses on the business impact of Big Data and highlights practical steps towards becoming a data-driven enterprise. The Technical Track targets working sessions in data modelling, visualizations, and architecture, catered to learning and collaboration for technical contributors in analytics.
This peer-to-peer group is vendor-neutral, platform-neutral and partner-neutral, and has a goal of motivating innovative solutions and learning in big data and analytics.
