Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit - 2014

The Great Lakes Business Intelligence & Big Data Summit was held on March 13, 2014 at the Detroit Marriott Troy in Troy. It was a successful event that brought over 200 IT and BI professionals together for one day to exchange innovative ideas, network and glean some insights from real-life case studies.

We had great speakers who joined us to discuss the new advances of big data in healthcare, how the automotive industry is using analytics to increase brand loyalty, and other topics like data lakes, data governance, and machine learning.
