- Driving ROI from your Big Data analytics investments
- Leveraging Hadoop and predictive analytics
- Identifying key resources for a successful Big Data analytics program.
Rob Wavra, Senior Director of Predictive Analytics at Novetta, Derek Strauss, Chief Data Officer of TD Ameritrade, and other senior executives are meeting in Dallas, TX, November 10 to kick off the Beyond Big Data Analytics event series, for an off-the-record discussion of the possibilities and pitfalls of Big Data. Topics include:
This is a question we get during initial meetings all the time. Novetta is stronger because our team is interdisciplinary – we’ve combined “traditional” data scientists, trained in CS and/or statistics, along with political scientists, sociologists, neuroscientists, operations researchers, and SMEs. One of our small teams tackling maritime trafficking, as an example, bring together a highly skilled data analyst, a PhD political scientist, and an intel analyst who served in the USCG. Other teams are heavier on data, engineering or the business topic at hand, depending on the problem set, but we’re always interdisciplinary. Analytical insights don’t just come from picking the right model. Analytical insights also require the right people with the right expertise.
