Big Data Innovation is back on the West Coast for the annual flagship summit, driven by the industry’s finest data experts and supported by 800+ attending data practitioners. Hosted by Innovation Enterprise, this content-led summit will feature inspirational keynotes, engaging workshops and unparalleled networking opportunities.

With the global data analytics market set to reach $125 billion worldwide by the end of [DN1] , there is no denying that we are living in the age of Big Data. Almost all companies have access to vast amounts of data, with this increasing exponentially year on year.

Whilst Big Data has revolutionized the way that most businesses operate day to day, challenges still remain for today’s leaders. New technologies and trends such as the Internet of Things, Enterprise Data Strategy & Artificial Intelligence continue to unsettle the road to Big Data success.

Big Data Innovation returns to the West Coast, taking place at the San Jose Convention Center this April 28 & 29. Following tradition, the event will be heavily content led, with a diverse line-up of 60+ industry speakers. We’ll be connecting 800+ elite minds, with no discipline left uncovered, the perfect setting for the entire data team.

“This year the summit will be bringing a fresh look on Big Data, with 7 business and technical focused stages.” said Chris Towers, Big Data Channel Head at Innovation Enterprise. “Each stage will deep dive into a different aspect of the data landscape, with inspirational presentations and actionable insight to implement back in the office.”
