Big Data & Business Analytics

Big Data & Business Analytics Symposium

the Big Data & Business Analytics Group at Wayne State University hosts its second annual symposium to bring together expert practitioners from industry to exchange practical ideas and insights and also share these with budding Big Data professionals.

2015 Annual Symposium

The 2015 annual symposium on Big Data & Business Analytics is being held on March 10-11, 2015 at the McGregor Memorial Conference Center at Wayne State University campus (MAP)

This symposium will focus on pragmatic issues faced while deploying Big Data strategies to drive business success. It will have special focus on managing and analyzing the data captured through marketing, product development, manufacturing, distribution, sales, and service in a global setting.

Symposium attendees will gain keen insights and learn tips on identifying Big Data opportunities, developing business cases, and using analytics to drive business success. The symposium also seeks to provide a clear distinction between legacy analytics that are pervasive in industry and the emerging next generation tools, technologies, and processes that will form the foundation for a new wave of innovation and growth.
