CeBIT’s DataCon has affirmed its place as the leading big data event in Australia with another successful event. Thank you to everyone involved, the event was a great success and it wouldn’t have been so without your support, enthusiasm, and contributions.
Thank you also to our sponsors and exhibitors, Cloudera, Splunk Inc, Contexti, CSIRO, NICTA, Keylink, Syncsort, Fifth Quadrant and Hudson, without their support the conference would not have been possible.
Thank you all again for participating and look forward to seeing you all there next year!
DataCon returns next May as part of the CeBIT Global Conference Series at CeBIT Australia 2014 which takes place from 5 - 7 May 2014 at Sydney Olympic Park. Save the date!
We all know about the Volume, Variety, and Velocity that characterises our Big Data, but the Value that can be delivered from it is the most critical. We need to know what questions to ask our data, and then we can see the results. DataCon 2013 is the forum to meet your peers who are doing just that.
At CeBIT Australia we are always at the leading edge of innovation, and DataCon 2013 is the latest evolution of our Big Data event series. As Big Data becomes simply Data and the norm, we are launching DataCon to take forward this change.
As Harper Reed, CTO, Obama for America 2012 presented at CeBIT 2013, we should now be calling Big Data, ‘data’ and no longer the ‘digital’ economy, but the economy, technology and innovation should be embedded in all business strategy, or risk being left behind.
DataCon 2013 will enable delegates to hone their strategies to deliver successful business outcomes.
