One of the supporters of the inaugural BigData and BI Excellence Awards instituted by BigInsights is DataCon, an exhibition and event for all data and analytics professionals that is now a part of the CeBIT global conferences. In fact, BigInsights has also been appointed as the official Research Partner for DataCon 2013 to be held in Sydney, Australia between October 9-10. DataCon 2013 is the latest evolution of the Big Data event series by CeBIT Australia.
To mark this new alignment, CeBIT Australia recently interviewed the Convenor of the BigData and BI Excellence Awards and CEO of BigInsights Raj Dalal to get an idea of the challenges before the world of Big Data today, and also, of course to get a lowdown on the first-ever Awards of its kind that BigInsights is spearheading.
Elaborating on the impetus behind the Awards, the BigInsights CEO said there was a realisation that the next wave of competition was the battle for the customers’ hearts and minds. Organisations needed to provide a hyper personalised experience using all possible data available. These Awards, hence, will recognise the innovators and early adopters using Big Data and Business Intelligence analytics solutions to make a business impact.
