Big data can leave you feeling brain dead. What's relevant? What's not? What do to about it? Sometimes it feels like you're mindlessly ploughing through numbers just for the sake of it.

This workshop, led by Brandwatch COO Bryan Tookey, will take you through some examples of big datasets, specifically looking at social media. It will give you the tools to bring your mindless reports and reporting processes back to life.

Key takeaways:

• Spotting reports for reports sake and other big data zombie traps

• How to ensure you are getting value from your big data brains

• Bring your big data back from the dead
