Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning are empowering businesses, solving tough challenges, and have the potential to make life easier and more productive for us all. 

C-level executives in a variety of industries are using these technologies to make better business decisions and to serve their customers better and more efficiently.  However, navigating through the hype and the magnitude of data may be a challenge. 

Beyond Big Data is a unique opportunity for managers on every level to learn more about the opportunities of these technologies while connecting with others in the industry. With a focus on trends and best practices, the event aims to explore strategies, best practices and technologies surrounding data analysis, artificial intelligence and machine learning while keeping in mind the implications of regulations, privacy, data protection, and ethics that govern this field.
