Hype vs. Reality. Value vs. Cost. Hadoop vs. Cassandra. Sql vs. NoSql. To say the least, Big Data has positioned itself as a major talking point within the past 6-12 months and it is up to CIO's to fully outline and develop best use cases to implement this technology. The major question that remains for CIO's and CTO's is when and where to use Big Data to help drive business value through the enterprise.
This session will discuss how it can be utilized to help drive back innovation and uncover "hidden" business value in an era where CIO's are looking differentiate their IT organizations as delivering revenue vs. being a cost center.
Many companies are undertaking "Big Data" initiatives. How can we be certain that these initiatives are aligned with business opportunities and challenges? What are the appropriate processes to reinforce this alignment?

We're witnessing a seismic shift within the information technology sector. What were once pie-in-the-sky concepts and buzzwords like video, virtualization, 10G and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are now transformative realities in the IT landscape. Further, the network is increasingly being viewed as a strategic or even a transformational asset to drive business.

During this session we will talk about how companies are driving business innovation and that critical role the network plays in the their success.
The rise of big data has significant potential to transform the way in which organizations manage and analyze their information. With the cloud you can gain access to solutions that easily scales up and down to any size you need and allows you to pay only for the resources you use. It provides elastic capacity on demand with no financial commitments or contract minimums, and allows access to your stored data from virtually anywhere and at any time.
This open forum executive discussion will provide the attendees with valuable insights on how to leverage the cloud for your big data needs and provide a baseline of core principles and strategies

Business Intelligence (BI) isn't just for specialists. It can illuminate derivatives, markets, and criminals. Today, as regulators make up for lost time with new draconian rules, CIOs, boards, executives, and risk and compliance officers need better business insights. CIOs must provide this with BI tools and processes that deliver:

More and more organizations are finding that, in terms of Governance, Risk
and Compliance (GRC), data is not only the problem, but also the solution. A robust data analytics capability allows for better visibility into an organization's GRC platform, enabling faster incident discovery and response. This session will uncover risk- and compliance-based insights that structured and unstructured data can provide, improving processes and, ultimately, business performance. Discussion topics will include:
Smartphones, tablet computers and other personal devices are connecting to an increasing number of corporate networks, and the trend continues to gain momentum. With employers and employees alike expecting 24/7 access to company data, ease of access and convenience need to be balanced with industry, security and compliance requirements.
The days of corporate IT departments distributing and mandating the technology that employees use are being challenged by a new generation of Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) workers who want to decide what technology they utilize. The lines between personal and business computing blur as employees want a single mobile device to meet all of their needs. While most users focus on the "simplicity" and "ease of use" of new devices, they rarely understand the associated complex regulatory and legal concerns. PCI, SOX, HIPAA and GLBA mean little to employees, but are a constant focus for IT executives charged with keeping their computing environment secure and compliant.
This interactive discussion will highlight some industry trends, and then launch into a candid discussion of how your peers are confronting these challenges. We'll focus on how to enable technology as a competitive advantage, while being mindful of the responsibility of having control over the flow of data.
Security is a fundamental issue for all successful businesses. Not only is

The Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) is a relatively new field demonstrating rapid development. It has been defined as: "The application of advanced sensor, computer, electronics, and communication technologies and management strategies - in an integrated manner - to increase the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation system". The importance of the ITS lies mainly on the fact that their contribution in many of today's problems is anticipated to be substantial, from improving road safety and network performance to environmental conditions. Integrating a common data management system to facilitate the implementation and monitoring of local transport schemes, CIOs can incorporate a strategic network management approach to allow a quick response to changes in network conditions.
This session will discuss the importance of understanding the value of a cross system integration center, and how early adoption of common data management systems can help preserve existing investments in legacy systems.
What is the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the cloud and how do we select the best providers? When reviewing cloud solutions, the CIO must ask questions about the provider's capability to manage the long-term IT transformation to a hybrid cloud environment, as it encompasses all aspects of IT.
Security and IT governance challenges cause consternation as enterprises continue virtualizing and wrestle with information assurance, enterprise architecture, data architecture, applications architecture and infrastructure.
Topics to be discussed include:
The provider's ability to integrate and aggregate multiple cloudservices using private, public and hybrid cloud computing
Cloud-burst capabilities in the provider's data centers
Interoperability skills, tools, and methodologies
