Conference Overview


Topic Abstract

We live in the information era where volumes of unstructured data are generated per minute, hourly and daily. Social media has taken us by storm and through the social media platforms tons of unstructured data are generated every second, minute, and hour.

The question we need to explore is how do we fuse this voluminous unstructured data with the traditional structured data stored in relational databases, Excel, etc, to draw valuable insights for decision making? Today’s decision makers need trusted, accurate and relevant information at their fingertips for valuable insights!

Round Table Discussion

This will be an interactive session where participants will join a table to discuss the round table topic - "Data Analytics - What's Next". Each table has a "Topic Guru" to facilitate the discussion.


Topic Abstract

Social Media conversations have resulted in one of the largest public databases of unsolicited consumer opinion in the world. Historically, brands have limited their use of social media listening to track mentions of their brands, but if you start to look at the larger implications of these public conversations, one realises that this database can now be used, through deep mining of the data, for rich consumer insights.
