Big Data may be one of the fastest growing topics in the tech industry to date. In this digital era, now more than ever, businesses are relying heavily on data and analytics in order to grow and succeed.

The challenges of managing and leveraging data will leave few businesses untouched. It is estimated that most medium-sized businesses now maintain over 200 separate, fragmented sources of data in the forms of SaaS tools, databases, and systems. Factor in the continuously evolving tools and technologies, and the recent explosion of artificial intelligence, and it can be hard to keep up.

Tech In Motion has partnered up with Cinchy, the global leader in data collaboration, and OneEleven, Canada's biggest scale-up accelerator, to gather together a group of industry leaders to share their latest thinking on how to turn BIG data into SMART data.

What you'll learn:
• How big data is driving the "post-app" era of technology
• The challenges of implementing data governance
• How AI is emerging from the lab and into customer experiences
• The big themes emerging in Big Data

Who should attend:
• This event is a must-see for people working in technology, advanced analytics, data governance, and artificial intelligence. We also welcome business folks with an interest in learning more about what being "data lead" really means. As well as any tech enthusiasts who simply just want to learn more about the topic!

• Join us on Wednesday, June 26th from 6-9PM in the 4th-floor event space at OneEleven (325 Front St. W.) to gain insight on the latest thinking on Big Data. There will be complimentary food and drinks for everyone!
