We will outline the panelists in a bit with full profiles.

In the meantime, here's a look at some of the content themes ZDNet hopes to hit:

  • Big data precursors: Are you analytical enough today to get much use out of big data?
  • Signals: Big data has its challenges. The biggest one is figuring out what your needle in the data stack is and then finding it.
  • Industries: What verticals are leading the big data charge and why?
  • Veracity of data: Can you trust the data from various unstructured sources?
  • Real returns: A look at projects and the big data ROI.

Those talking points are just a rough outline we'll shape as we get closer to the event. Feel free to add other topics you'd like covered.
