5th Big Data And Analytics Annual Summit Recap

We all know that the volume of data generated every minute is enormous. What to do with it, using which strategy and through which creative approach? This was one of the many highlights of the 5th Big Data and Analytics Annual Summit.

This is the second time we attended the event organized by the Strategy Institute

And it again surprised us with its high standard.

It was an excellent opportunity to meet industry leaders and partners and to share insights on Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Machine Learning, Data Analytics.

In addition to that, we learned about the new trends and check what solutions organizations are adopting.

If last year our takeaway was to use big data to predict, consolidate and ultimately make a profit, this year’s summit takeaway is to explore your high volumes of data with a strategy.

Understand your objectives and model them as qualitative problems. That is what Faraz Zaidi explained in the case study he presented. To use advanced analytical and computational methods to develop solutions using state-of-the-art algorithms and techniques.

It allowed them to bring structured data, nonstructured data and transform it later through batch analysis, streaming and machine learning.

He said that “there is a growing demand for better Healthcare IT and Analytics to drive better patient care services and business decisions.”
