IBM, Syracuse University School of Information Studies (iSchool), and the University of Ottawa Telfer School of Management join forces to create an action-oriented and participant-driven peer review workshop to discuss the future of Big Data and Analytics and revolutionize the availability of Big Data and Analytics skills for businesses to leverage.
Extremely valuable insights from the discussions we had in the Academics Track. The comments and recommendations we received helped us to give a final update to our Enterprise Information and Analytics specialization curricula.
– Professor José Alberto Incera Diéguez, ITAM Mexico, Attendee Information On Demand 2012
