Alex Castro to speak at Big Data 2014

M Corp founding partner and CEO Alex Castro is a featured speaker during Big Data 2014, a one-day conference on how to better manage government data.

The  focus is on how to leverage big data through analytics and business intelligence solutions.

Castro will discuss how to make analytics and big data deliver its intended value during the conference on Jan 22 at the Sacramento Convention Center. He will share how this requires organizations to leverage the investment beyond a project or single use application; to justify the expense by making analytics part of the daily business operation.

The session – which includes California State Lottery Chief Information Officer/ Deputy Director of IT Amy Tong and California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) Chief Enterprise Architect Chris Riesen – will also focus on how to leverage big data through analytics and business intelligence solutions.

Effectively managing analytics initiatives is a critical issue for State Government and goes well beyond the choice of technology tools.The session will address numerous questions, including how to move past a silo model of single or multiple analytics deployment and ownership, who should drive the business intelligence and analytics direction, and what are the major failure points in leveraging analytics and big data?
