The EDF2013 Executive Panel on Big Data brings together 6 executives of data and knowledge intense organisations from various sectors in Europes economy.

Big Data is the name of a technological field that is pushing back the frontiers of database technology far beyond current data management systems. Challenges are, for example

  • the sheer volume of data to be handled (soon the amount of data we acquire will bypass the amount of data we can store),
  • streaming of data, heterogeneity of data, and
  • openness versus privacy of data.

Exploiting big data properly is becoming increasingly essential for the strength and competitiveness of businesses and organizations, and significantly influences the quality of service provided by public and private institutions. In the panel we will explore, with six outstanding speakers, the key issues faced in the process of turning large data into high value.
