Event Details

 The only purpose of Big Data is to produce “Actionable Tiny Data”!


Why You Should Attend:

Big data technology has become an important part of the financial services industry and will continue to drive innovation into the future. A number of organisations, such as Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation, Securities and Exchange Commission (US) and Harley-Davidson, are already using Big Data to their advantage, offering unparalleled levels of convenience, returns and risk management.

This Masterclass is tailored specifically to the Financial Services industry. Attend the Masterclass and find the steps to take and leverage big data in your business. The Masterclass will allow leaders and professionals working in Financial Services organisations understand the benefits and opportunities of Big Data and become familiar with Big Data technologies, analytics and applications.

Since it was first defined in 2001, Big Data has made major advances into consumer lives and medium-to-large organisations. According to IDG, a global market intelligence leader, “From 2005 to 2020, the digital universe will grow by a factor of 300 to 40 trillion gigabytes”, approximately the same as 625 Billion iPhone units.

This growth is driven by increasing connectivity for enterprises and by the business benefits Big Data can deliver. One example - substituting sampling with 100% analysis and automatic fraud detection performed by “Robocop”, a US Securities and Exchange Commission initiative.

At the Masterclass delegates will study Big Data types, sources and major technologies and perform exercises using Big Data for pattern matching and analyzing datasets across business units.

Finally, at the end of Day 2, delegates will take part in an exercise, where they will prepare a Plan for a Big Data proof-of-concept project.
