Big Data is everywhere. Healthcare, defense, biomedicine, social media, retail – these industries and many others are dealing with the data deluge. Much like a stampede, this data is coming at you from all sides.

///StampedeCon_2012 was an affordable national Big Data conference held in centrally-located St. Louis, MO on August 1, 2012.

ReadWriteWeb includes StampedeCon in Noteworthy Upcoming Big Data Conferences.

St. Louis Business Journal: “St. Louis Big Data conference draws Facebook, Nokia, Monsanto!”

ZDNet: “What’s especially impressive about the StampedeCon speaker faculty is the representation within it from companies using Big Data and not just from vendors in the space.”

Datanami: “Given the concentration of expertise in the midwest, a new national Big Data conference series, StampedeCon, will launch in St. Louis”

Techli: “Industry professionals will see the growing utility of harnessing Big Data for their online companies. Those already using Big Data will find new ways to help use the information to solve key issues.”

Whether you were an expert or just getting started with Hadoop, Big Data or Data Science, ///StampedeCon_2012 provided value through presentations that:

  • Provided specific case studies for collecting, storing and analyzing Big Data assets along with various industries’ views on what they see as “Big Data.”
  • Discussed some of the challenges companies face when handling Big Data.
  • Focused on the “how” of Big Data collection and analysis with operational and development-focused talks.

Speakers from Facebook, EMC/Isilon, ReadWriteWeb, Revelytix, Nokia, Kraft Foods and others covered these topics and more, making ///StampedeCon_2012 a well-rounded event designed to inform and equip organizations thinking about or already working with Big Data.  It connected those interested in better understanding and leveraging Big Data and discussing what’s next for this emerging field.
