    “The role of data in business, health, science, technology, retail and entertainment will be a key differentiator for the organisations that succeed in the next digital wave. Big Data Week educates and creates new opportunities for organisations of all shapes and sizes in understanding what big data can do for them now and in the future."

    Andrew Gregson, Big Data Week Asia Pacific and Australasia

    In this one day conference, speakers will share how they approach their data requirements from the perspective of what's possible, what's practical, and what's scalable - and most importantly, what value results from their initiatives. Lessons will be shared on how to effectively tackle big data, and forward-thinking ideas will be explored.


    This event is part of the global Big Data Week festival - check out all the other events happening in KL!
