Abstract Countries, cities, industries and businesses around the globe are becoming digital to capitalize on the unprecedented opportunity brought about by the next wave of the Internet – the Internet of Everything (IoE). When people, process, data and things are connected there is an incredible opportunity to create new revenue streams, compete with disruptive competitors, and deliver better experiences, and new operating models to drive both efficiency and value.

Once connected, gaining business insights from data is top of mind for organizations today. Over 38% of the value to be realized with the IoE will be generated by insights from analytics. To harness the data that is massive, messy and everywhere, it is necessary to deploy analytics from the core to the edge to bring together both historical and new real-time data sources to generate unique and real time insights. In this session, Mala Anand will demystify big data and analytics and showcase how companies are benefiting today.
