Event Details

Using data to ignite growth

VentureBeat hosted our inaugural DataBeat event in 2013, and it was a smash success, bringing together some of the top data scientists, analysts, investors, and entrepreneurs in the field of big data.

Returning on May 19-20, DataBeat will be laser-focused on helping companies increase profitability through big data and smart analytics tools.

Growth-oriented executives want to use data to drive their decisions, but they’re confronting a bewildering set of options. We’re gathering the brightest minds in the industry to filter the noise and give new insights on technologies and strategies that will accelerate growth.
