“It seems we are right now redefining the enterprise itself, speeding toward a data-driven reality, where each day, within any given organization, terabytes of customer interactions, hardware dispositions, employee actions, and business transactions can flow together and coalesce within teachable, analytical systems.”

That’s the perspective from Brad Shimmin from Current Analysis, one of the big data experts joining the VentureBeat webinar New Relic is sponsoring this week: Big Data, Big Money: How Four Companies Are Mining Data for Major Innovation.

Shimmin and the rest of the webinar panel will discuss how something so vast and complex can be made useful to real-world users. How do we extract the maximum value from that analytical fire hose? Whether you’re already collecting all the data you can, or just trying to figure out where to start, the webinar will present straight-from-the-trenches reports that can give you inspiring ideas as well as practical tips on turning data directly into actionable strategies and bottom line results.
