Mar. 15, 2012 SVForum Big Data Analytics
On Thursday, March 15, 2012 in Mountain View at the Microsoft Conference Center, SVForum held the “Big Data Analytics Conference – 2012 and Beyond.” Big data keeps getting bigger. Like the ocean, there is a lot of water but it has to be filtered before you can use any of it. The revolution in faster analytics offers the hope of turning big data in to useful information and timely reaction for the public and private sector. Gathering and analyzing big data still raises concerns about privacy and must be considered in the rush to be more efficient.
