The KC Big Data Summit: Data is everywhere

BIME was a proud sponsor of the Big Data Summit KC held this month at the Kansas City Convention Center, an event showcasing amazing speakers, demonstrations, a job fair and even a hackathon! The three day summit attracted hundreds of the brightest minds (or the geeks of Silicon Prairie, as they call themselves) in the field of data science and analytics. Topics ranged from healthcare, to education, to the Internet of Things. More than 400 participants eagerly discovered innovative new ways to harness Big Data within their company and put it to practical use.

Jim Lysinger, BIME VP, spoke on a Data Visualization panel and stressed the importance of how cloud BI changes the way organizations combine offline and online data to analyze trends and drive change via the use of interactive visual dashboards. BIME’s new Version 6 met with jaw-dropping approval from data scientists and business users alike. Really powerful, yet so easy to use.
