The third annual Big Data Summit brings together thought leaders from the UIRP, industry, and academia for a highly interactive event to address big questions surrounding big data. Just as new information technologies and the Internet itself fundamentally transformed business and industrial competitiveness over the past 25 years, big data is posed to bring the next wave of innovation, productivity, and growth. The coupling of big data and advanced analytics has the potential to raise efficiency and create value in almost all business sectors. Taking advantage of big data and advanced analytics enables companies to create new products and services, enhance existing ones, and invent entirely new business, models. We have more than 60 companies participating and 400 registered participants.
