What is Your Big Data Not Telling You?
Any gaze into the future starts with a look to the past and present. Any forecast or prediction made without that grounding in the current is just a guess. Every organization knows this already but how much of your data are you using to base your future plans on? My ‘guess’ – not a lot. There is competitive advantage to be had in making the right decisions. Let me tell you how to use more of your data to make better decisions and maybe discover things you never knew about your own organization.BOB MIDDLETON

Journalism in the Age of Big Data: Investigating the Monster Leaks of the Future
A lifetime ago, whistleblowers dropped caches of documents on newspapers’ doorsteps and journalists would hunt through the documents alone, late at night in their newsroom, with little outside help. A year ago, an anonymous source began leaking close to 3 terabytes of files to a journalist at Süddeutsche Zeitung via encrypted transfer. What happened after that? In this talk, we’ll go into the details of how ICIJ’s data unit made all these files searchable and accessible to hundreds of journalists working all over the world and used data extracted from them to reverse engineer Mossack Fonseca’s operational database. We’ll also take a step into the future of investigative journalism, where journalists cooperate on online platforms, sharing files and leads - and breaking monster stories out of monster data.MATTHEW CARUANA GALIZIA

That leaves business leaders and the IT professionals supporting them wondering: Is it possible to make Sense of Big Data and useful for business users?Stefanos Tsolakidis
