Virtual track extending across BIA and MDM Summit: Big Data Once you get past the hype its evident that big data represents tremendous opportunity to those organizations that can unlock its business value. Analytics applied to big data assets of greater diversity and depth than previously possible promises to fuel innovation and transform industries. To deliver on this promise however big data demands increased information governance competency as the benefits cannot be realized unless efforts are anchored by clear understanding, quality and trust of the data. This virtual track will help business and IT leaders understand the concepts, benefits, technology impacts and challenges associated with the big data phenomenon across BI, analytics and MDM. Altered economic realities and business needs demand new information and analytical approaches. These new approaches must enable agility through the sharing and analysis of massive amounts of rich, novel information types. New use cases are arising that express an insatiable appetite for real-time and contextaware insights or that demand prediction and action, not just reporting and monitoring. These new demands challenge how enterprises govern and manage information, and will test their ability to best use these new insights, while exposing BI and analytics teams to dramatically different challenges and requirements. The key issues covered in this keynote presentation are: Why and how is information, its use and analysis changing so dramatically? What new challenges, trends and opportunities are emerging for BI and analytic leaders? How can organizations adapt to and harness new solutions? Gartner Keynote: Information as Strategy: CEOs are Waking Up to It. Are You Ready? Symptoms of a major trend towards information-centric management thinking are everywhere. From the wall of noise about big data, to the chatter about the role of data scientist. We will look into what business leaders really expect, what they will do about it and how you can thrive on the changes ahead. Whats real and whats hype in the rise of informationcentric management thinking? How are CEOs thinking about this trend? What should BI professionals be doing to help their enterprises make real progress? Mark Raskino Guest Keynote: ID: The Quest for Identity in the 21st Century The human brain will adapt to whatever environment in which it is placed; the cyber world of the 21st Century constitutes a totally new type of environment; the brain could therefore be changing in parallel, in correspondingly totally new ways. In particular we need to devise new strategies for optimizing how we handle the increasing and unprecedented information load. We need first to establish a means for identifying salient facts from the extraneous; second, establish a conceptual framework within which this information can have wider significance, Gartner Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit 2013
