Big Data is already impacting the way you live and work. Some of you have started projects while some of you are not yet convinced. Whatever your interest or knowledge level, there is a wealth of great experiences that awaits you at SAPPHIRE NOW + ASUG Annual Conference in May 2013!

There are over 60 sessions across the campuses where you can gain valuable insight into the opportunities and challenges that can be derived from Big Data - from a business as well as technology perspective.

Top Recommendation

The panel discussion Experience Data like never before scheduled for  Tuesday 11 a.m. in the Database and Technology Campus hosted by Steve Lucas is my top recommendation and a key highlight not to be missed. One of the panellists, Rick Smolan will provide a unique non-technology and human perspective, gained from working on his latest publication: The Human Face Big Data. He is a renowned photo-journalist who has created the best-selling  'Day in the Life' photography series and his work has been featured on the covers of Fortune magazine, Time magazine, Newsweek and US News & World Report. The Human Face of Big Data is a unique coffee table book bursting with fascinating Big Data stories and amazing photography from across the globe highlighting how Big Data is enabling society to sense, measure, and understand aspects of its existence in ways never possible before!
