WIT Announces the 2nd Annual Great Lakes Business Intelligence and Big Data Summit

Mark your calendars and get ready for the premier Business Intelligence (BI) and Big Data event of the year! The 2nd Annual Great Lakes Business Intelligence and Big Data Summit, hosted by WIT Inc., will be taking place on Thursday, March 13, 2014 at the Marriott Hotel in Troy, MI.

Following up on the success of last year’s sold-out event, the BI and Big Data Summit returns for a full-day agenda consisting of 17 presentations including BI Success stories, best practices and vendor technology presentations featuring speakers from  BI and Big Data practitioners at top companies within the manufacturing, healthcare, and services industries. The Summit is a great opportunity for attendees to listen to influential speakers who share their proven best practices, view the latest technology innovations, and create business opportunities by connecting with other technology and business professionals in the region.

This year’s stimulating keynote speakers are Rebecca D. Costa, Sociobiologist, and author of “The Watchman’s Rattle” and Gary Robinson, Program Director for IBM's Big Data organization. Ms. Costa will challenge conventional wisdom with a presentation titled, “The Cautionary Side of Big Data.” And Mr. Robinson will highlight solutions to Big Data and analytics problems with a presentation titled, “Tools for Battling Complexity in the Modern World.”

Case studies and related topics will be presented by practitioners at a cross-section of top companies within the manufacturing, healthcare, and services industries. Vendor sponsors for the Summit include Microsoft, Informatica, QlikTech, and Hortonworks.

We hope to see you in March!
