Big Data

How to actually use big data to grow your business globally

Our big data event DataBeat is coming up on May 19-20, and it’s the first event we’re aware of that focuses solely on how businesses can use big data to achieve more profitability.

We’re eschewing the hype around data scientists. Instead, we’re focused on real results companies can get from using these big data tools, either for more revenue, or reduced costs.

And we’re excited to announce another session, this one with Western Union EVP and CIO David Thompson.

The room is filling up quickly, and ticket prices shoot up soon. Register now and save $200. Seats are limited.

Here’s a bit more about the session:

Western Union, a global payment services company that serves more than 200 countries, is transforming its business from a traditional one — based on physical retail store locations — to one that also uses mobile and the web seamlessly.

Western Union’s Thompson will explain how the company is collecting and storing the data it is collecting across these fronts with the big data tool, Cloudera, and analyzing it to help the company’s business leaders make better decisions around the types of new products and services if offers — in order to achieve more growth.

At our inaugural DataBeat conference last December, executives from GE, Humana, Intuit, and LinkedIn talked about how their companies’ data scientists go about their business. Now the conversation is changing; it’s about using data to meet key business goals.

Stay tuned for more session announcements this week. You can find event details — including our full lineup of data visionaries — here.

Join us May 19-20 for a two-day roadmap on how to approach data to ignite real growth for your business. Again, the room is nearly full. Get your tickets today and save $200.
