Le développement de Big Data et de ses applications focalise la vie privée.
Big Data est une réalité où réside énormément de valeur économique, mais Big Data nourrit également le mécontentement en termes de vie privée; il faut trouver un bon équilibre entre les organisations et les individus. La confidentialité et l’ère du Big Data offrent des nouveaux défis mais aussi des opportunités.

Groupe cible
Ce congrès est organisé pour tout un chacun confronté avec le traitement d’ensembles de données conséquents et déstructurés, tant les professionnels de la gestion que de l’IT.

Plusieurs raisons pour ne pas rater ce congrès:

  • Un programme très intéressant avec des thèmes actuels et des témoignages de clients
  • Big Data 2014 vous donne une vue réaliste sur ce marché qui ne fait qu’évoluer.

  • Non négligeable, accès aisé et facilités de parking.
  • Kroes va injecter 2,5 milliards d’euros dans les Big Data.
    Avec cet argent, Kroes entend investir dans des initiatives liées aux big data, en se focalisant spécifiquement sur la recherche et l’innovation dans les domaines de l’énergie, de la fabrication et de la santé.
