WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL ABOUT BIG DATA?
Thursday, February 27, 2014 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST
Speaker: Peter Ozolin
The amount of data in our world has been exploding, and analyzing large data sets—so-called “Big Data”—has become a key basis of competition. Professionals in all sectors have to grapple with the implications of big data. The increasing volume and detail of information captured by enterprises, the rise of multimedia, social media, and the expansive Internet will continue to fuel exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future.
Join us  for an informative webinar regarding the use of big data, and how you can manage and leverage it to create a knowledge advantage now and in the future. Peter Ozolin, Founder and CEO of the legal industry’s leading listening platform, Manzama Inc., will be leading the discussion.
