NextBigTech Asia 2017 Overview

It’s no secret that in this day and age we’re faced with an unprecedented influx of data, while everyone is aware of the value of data science and big data, harnessing its value and aligning it with strategic organizational goals still largely remains a challenge for most. Where most conferences are neither too broad to be appreciated by techies or too technical to be useful for decision makers, NextBigTech Asia aims to be the intersection for that missing link that connects the dots between big data and real-life use cases. NextBigTech Asia 2017 will illustrate actinable case-studies for the following sectors; Healthcare, Banking and Government.
