Speaker Greg Peter sorts Big Confusion at Toronto Chapter Big Data Event

The topic of Big Data is hot, yet mysterious. Greg Peter showed that only 5%-10% of fortune 500 companies actually have an implementation plan in place (whether for production, or PoC). CIOs know that Big Data is a fantastic concept that could immensely assist with growth, cash flow and customer retention. However Big Data is surrounded by Big Confusion. Greg took us through a journey of the concept, the tools, the history, and put it all together for us with actual practical use cases that demonstrate a direct connection to strategy and business goals.

In addition, Greg predicted some trends for 2015, with some painful truths, and key points for consideration by CIOs.

Very nicely done Mr. Peter!
