Let's make money from big data!


Published on

Big data is still relatively new and it is very exciting. The opportunities, if not necessarily endless, are are at least incredibly rich and varied. Aiming to bridge the link between Big Data as a Technology and Big Data as Business Value, we hope our presentation will help frame some of your thinking on how to use and benefit from this topical development.
