The DisInformation Age: Technology is Making Us Stupid
with Stephen Few, Perceptual Edge

The Information Age has largely failed us. It has buried us in data that we have scarce means to understand or use. Rather than using technology to elevate ourselves, we have allowed it to lower us to the level of machines, reduced to programmed responses rather than reflective thinking. An Information Age worthy of the name will not be ushered in by technology, but by people. Technology can assist us, but it cannot take the lead. It is up to us to take a stand.

To make this happen, we must focus on design — the art and science of making things work really, really well to do things that really, really matter. In particular, a design mindset is needed by software companies to create effective data sensemaking tools and it's needed by each of us to clearly communicate the stories that we find in our data to those who need to be informed.

The time to take a stand is now. The opportunity won't last forever.

Visual Analytics for Big Data
with Fawad Asrar Qureshi, Teradata

Visualisation is not about answering business questions, but finding the questions in the first place. Analysis is a continuous process where the answer of the first question lies in the answer of next. The quest for finding the right information can only be achieved through an integrated environment where all the information is present. Depending upon your level and role in the organization, the level of detail that would fulfill your thirst for information may vary. The availability of integrated data is extremely critical in order to have a meaningful analysis, which requires a platform capable of storing large volumes of data.

The Democratization of Data
with Dan Holle, Vertica Systems

The data landscape has shifted. Long gone are the days of batch data collection and dissemination, where data was a backend commodity that few had access to. The keeper of the kingdom was an IT person or DBA who didn't share – not out of malice, but because no one knew to ask for it.

Today, every department in every organization is crying out for information and data on their customers, employees and lines of business. Hidden in the mountain of data that is collected on a continual basis is information that can help improve business processes, cut costs, enhance the customer experience, and discover new sources of revenue. Enter the new arena of technological politics: the democratization of data. In this talk by Vertica Systems (an HP Company), you will learn the steps taken to bring data to the people that need it most, across all levels of an organization, and the best ways to monetize this information at the speed of business.
