Microsoft Talks Big Data at O’Reilly® Strata

Dave Campbell delivers keynote at Strata Santa ClaraFor those of you into big data, O’Reilly’s® Strata Conference in Santa Clara, CA is the place to be. If you are there, visit the Microsoft booth to meet with Microsoft’s big brains for big data – and while you’re there, enter to win an Xbox 360 with Kinect.

On Thursday, you won’t want to miss the keynote starting at 9:05AM PT sharp from Dave Campbell, Technical Fellow, Microsoft. Dave will share how big data is a game changer for the Halo 4 team and how they use big data technologies to enhance the gaming experience.

Also on Thursday, stick around for another keynote by Kate Crawford, Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research, at 9:45AM PT. Kate will discuss the biases that can sometimes exist in big data and how organizations might work beyond them to achieve their goals.

To coincide with Strata, we’re kicking off a short blog series that aims to “bust” some of the myths surrounding big data and discuss how our solutions can help your organization get started doing big data analytics today. We look forward to seeing you at the conference and be sure to check back here tomorrow morning for more!
