Led by top CIOs in North America, the CIO Visions’ Cloud & BI Summit attracted more than 200 CIOs and IT leaders in New York City, April 18-30, 2013.
Derek Peterson, Boingo’s Senior Vice President of Engineering, delivered a presentation on Burgeoning Business Intelligence at the invitation-only event, where IT execs were focused on a key objective: how to transform raw data into meaningful, insightful information and actionable analytics to drive business value.
During his session, Dr. D (that’s what we call him here at Boingo because he’s a braniac PhD/Doctor of Computer Science) shared his knowledge about mobile data and technology trends, presented a showcase of data analytics and intelligence, and gave a glimpse into the future of data integration.
In addition to showing how mobile is bridging the physical and digital worlds, he shared some fascinating stats from the global crowdsourced project The Human Face of Big Data.
Here’s one good nugget to chew on. The average person today processes more data in a single day than a person in the 1500s did in an entire lifetime.
Wow, I feel smarter just reading that!
