Event description

Description

Big data has dominated technology headlines for over half a decade, with data analytics, extraction, and visualization having revolutionised numerous sectors across the globe.

While significant changes have indeed driven progress across a range of industries, from tech to fashion, in reality most businesses are only just beginning to understand the potential of big data, let alone the infrastructure systems they require. Regardless of nature, operations, and size, firms must embrace big data as the key to unlocking their full potential.

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FACCI) invites you to join us for an in-depth presentation by an esteemed panel that will address Big Data trends, opportunities and challenges from CIO, business, consulting and technological perspectives.

Alexis Giral, Founding Director & Senior IT Infrastructure Consultant at Systemethix

"Big Data: Solutions & Trends"

Alexis Giral is the driving force behind setting up Systemethix in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore with his two partners.

Prior to Systemethix, Alexis worked for nearly 17 years at IBM. During that time, he had multiple roles such as infrastructure specialist & architect, storage evangelist, advanced technical support specialist, and technical project manager, team leader & manager, in both pre-sales and post-sales work. Before moving to Australia (where the bodyboarding and surfing is admittedly better) Alexis worked in Europe, America, Africa and Asia where he acquired skills that went beyond the technical to allow him to work more efficiently with teams of mixed technical skills and cultural backgrounds and build lasting friendships. His years in Australia have turned Alexis into a straight shooter who is not reluctant to tell customers exactly where they stand.

One of Alexis' strengths is the ability to work with multiple vendors and technologies to bring the best solution to the customer. Alexis is dedicated to achieving commercial outcomes for clients and recognises that technology and design of infrastructure solutions are only useful to clients if they also take into account business requirements and are built on a roadmap based on short, medium and long-term goals. Another one of Alexis' strength is his ability to work with both the technical and non-technical teams and ensure that all solutions are well documented through all stages of the project lifecycle.
