Featured Presentation:

Business Analytics in a Big Data World

Ted Malone, Solution Architect - Data and AI Microsoft

“Big Data” is a topic that everyone is talking about, but few actually have a clear definition of the Big Data problem space, or how Big Data Analytics fits into an overall Business Analytics process. In this session, we will discuss how Business Analytics and traditional Business Intelligence systems fit into the Big Data space. We will also discuss the Microsoft approach to solving “Big Data” problems. We will demonstrate capabilities of the Microsoft Federal team’s “Enterprise Data Analytics Platform” and show how familiar tools can be used to gain insight from data, no matter the type or location.

Ted is currently a Data and AI Solution Architect with Microsoft's Customer Success organization. In this role, he works with large organizations to ensure that they properly and efficiently apply AI, Machine Learning, Data Analytics, and Business Intelligence technologies to achieve their business goals. Prior to taking this role, Ted worked with the US Federal Government to help solve "Big Data" problems through the use of cloud technologies.
