IBM, 10gen and Think Big - Big Data Explosion Event Hosted By New York Technology Council

John D.
Group Organizer
New York, NY
On Wednesday, June 26th at 6:30 PM  the New York Technology Council is sponsoring a Big Data event featuring IBM, 10gen, Thing Big.
According to IBM, "Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. Big data is more than simply a matter of size; it is an opportunity to find insights in new and emerging types of data and content, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that were previously considered beyond your reach." But, for businesses of all sizes, big data can be hard to collect, analyze, visualize, and process; and the information places tremendous stress on networks, storage, and servers, which is why cloud computing has become an increasingly attractive solution.

Why? For several reasons, including ability to easily scale as the volume of data increases, seemingly limitless resources on demand, ability to quickly crunch large volumes of unstructured data, and potential cost savings. However, these benefits also come with legitimate concerns such as privacy and security, possibility of outages, and cost of data migration and integration. So, how do you determine if the cloud is the right solution for your business? Are you better off with an on-premise database? Get the answers on June 26 from IBM, 10gen, and Think Big.
