- Anke Domscheit-Berg (Freelance)
- Olga Steidl (Linko )
- Ivan P. Yamshchikov (Yandex)
Everyone is talking about Big Data – but what’s really behind it and how can you make data work for your business? Collecting data is just one part of the puzzle. To source the right information, read it so it makes sense and -finally- how to execute on it is the most important task for successful big data management. At this panel workshop we’ll listen to a lot of examples from big companies who’re dealing with massive amount of data on a daily basis. Each panel member will give a short demo and insight to their strategies and might revile some surprising facts.
This workshop is organised in cooperation with Berlin Geekettes. More info here.
