MapR, the company behind the Converged Data Platform, is hosting two very timely upcoming big data events in Southern California. If you find yourself in Los Angeles, specifically Newport Beach in Orange County, and/or Santa Monica, please consider registering now.
Digital Transformation in Big Data – Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016 from 4pm to 7pm
Why is digital transformation such an important topic? Well it’s no surprise to business leaders that disruption through data is a significant competitive threat. For example, look how the world’s largest hotel chains have spent decades building their brands, improving their service and developing properties – only to be completely disrupted by a competitor that doesn’t own a single hotel room. Or how Uber is now the largest car service without owning a single car or employing a single driver. Leading organizations recognize that they need to take action. But what is the best approach to ensure lasting success?
MapR’s Jack Norris and insideBIGDATA’s Daniel D. Gutierrez will be on hand for insight and best practices on digital transformation. Learn how companies like IRI, Experian, Gracenote and Baptist Health have all successfully implemented digital transformation practices within their organizations and have decreased their IT spend while increasing performance.
Location: Fairmont Newport Beach, 4500 MacArthur Blvd, Newport Beach, CA 92660
