What does all this mean for you? Fortunately, It’s now your time in the sun, and to be an agent of change. Data and analytics are a strategic imperative that propels the organization forward, not just reports on the past. With this shift comes change--new roles emerge and existing ones expand and/or morph. You want to proactively plan for your future rather than passively let it happen.

Advanced Security Intelligence tools store, correlate and analyze millions of events and flows daily to identify critical incidents your security team needs to investigate. The volume, variety and velocity involved clearly defines Security as a “Big Data challenge.”

Infrastructure Matters for Delivering Value with Big Data and Analytics

Tuesday, October 28 | 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Category: Infrastructure Matters

It's time to change how you think about hardware and storage. Break the cycle of thinking that good enough is good enough. Even though 70 percent of organizations realize that making the right IT infrastructure choices are critical to business outcomes and competitive advantage, less than ten percent believe their existing infrastructure is prepared to address big data and analytics challenges. Those who are prepared know that it is smart business to choose the right infrastructure for their data center to enable real-time insights, deliver an engaging customer experience and offer 24x7 access and availability. In fact, new systems and storage technologies can offer up to 82X faster time to insight from big data and analytics and up to 50 percent in storage cost reduction. Join this session to learn how IBM and its community-led, open innovation can help you achieve greater competitive advantage.

But the true potential of mobile and social in the enterprise is realized only when these technologies are combined with analytics to deliver relevant insights to the right people, at the right time, in the right place.

Keynote Speaker: Grant Imahara

Bust Common Myths and Unlock Your Information Potential
Monday, October 27

Grant Imahara is one of the former hosts of Discovery Channel's Mythbusters. Using a blend of science and fun, they put urban legends to the test, sometimes with explosive results. Since joining the team in January 2005, Grant has tested hundreds of myths, and in the process swam with sharks, shot a merry-go-round with a .50 Cal sniper rifle to make it spin, hung from the skids of a helicopter, fired cheese out of a cannon into the San Francisco Bay, allowed 25 tarantulas to crawl on his head, dropped a BMW from an aircraft, sliced a car in half using a rocket sled and destroyed so many cars he's stopped counting, and built many, many robots, all in the name of science.

Before joining Mythbusters, Grant spent nine years working in special effects as an animatronics engineer and modelmaker for George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic. He worked on numerous blockbusters including the Matrix sequels, A.I., Galaxy Quest, Terminator 3, Van Helsing, and Star Wars: Episodes 1-3. He put the lights in R2-D2's dome and gave the Energizer Bunny his beat. He created the often rude and irreverent robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson for The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
