About the Presentation
As we grapple with the many challenges brought forth by Big Data, a need for data management has made itself expressly clear and is emerging as a key discipline recognized by CTOs of the largest corporations in the world.
Information architects take the lead in contextualizing Big Data. They are the people behind the mass of ones and zeros who are able to transform Big Data into the shared and valued insight that is Big Information. Big Data becomes Big Information only when put in the hands of qualified professionals who are capable shaping data into a context that empowers stakeholders both internally and externally.
Join us as we explore the role of the Information Architect and Big Data.
