What an exciting week in Atlanta as local high tech companies and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) are hosting Big Data Week. Atlanta is home to 11 of the Fortune 500 companies such as UPS, Coca Cola, Delta Airlines and Home Depot. Combine that with one of the top 10 engineering and computer science schools, Georgia Tech, and you get a recipe for limitless innovation in Big Data technology.
This week is packed with presentations, panels, workshops and experience-sharing opportunities. I am honored to be a part of the panel on Big Data & Compliance in the Financial Sector on Wednesday. For those of you who know me, it comes as no surprise that information governance and compliance is a favorite subject of mine. And on Thursday, I’ll discuss technology with industry colleagues during The Momentum Won’t Stop: Big Data Vendor Roundtable.
I hope some of you who read this blog can join me or at least follow the action on Twitter: the hashtag for the conference is #bdw13ATL
See you there!
