Looking for your help with a Big Data roundtable

Summary:We're looking for a mix of executives, experts and academics to debunk big data and real-world implementations.

In October, we're looking to hold a big data panel to focus on the real-world implications for corporate IT. I'm looking to crowdsource a few ideas.

The overview of the panel roughly goes like this:

The big data and analytics panel will focus on how real world applications deliver value and how drowning in data has become the biggest issue in the enterprise. How do you filter and use that data to better understand customers, partners and employees?

That's the boilerplate, but here's where you come in.

  • What panelists and big data experts would you like to see?
  • What detours on the big data topic are worth exploring?
  • And what are your must have threads on the big data and analytics topic?

We're looking for a mix of executives, experts and academics to debunk big data and real-world implementations. The potential panelists will riff for an hour or so on big data. The panel will also be livestreamed with a meetup afterward.

Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing your suggestions via the talkbacks below, email or Twitter @ldignan. Cheers.
