We’re a couple of days away from our second Big Data Summit event in as many calendar quarters, and it’s shaping up to be jam-packed with good presentations and conversation around innovations in data management and advanced analytics.  For people not aware, we’re conducting Big Data Summits regionally in North America and Europe with an eye on helping educate organizations who are looking for ways to tackle the enormous amount of data growing in (and outside) of their four walls. More importantly, we’re helping people answer the question, “what do I do with all this data?”.  If you can’t make it to the Bay Area on Feb 18th, look for one coming soon to a venue near you.  Here are some previews of what’s coming on Thursday:

1) Intuit (formerly mint.com) will be talking about how they anonymize consumer data and provide financial benchmarks and insights to individuals.  e.g., Do you spend more on dinner than the average Joe or Jane in California?

2)  Mobclix, a mobile advertising network, will discuss how they enable application developers for the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, etc. to make more money by providing targeting advertising based on better analytics. (And how they’ve deployed it on Amazon Web Services to scale up & down on demand)

3) Merv Adrian from IT Market Strategy will keynote to talk about trends in data management and the questions you need to ask yourself as you consider ways to tackle big data problems. He’s also moderating a panel that I’m hearing will have some cameo appearances from other industry analysts with big brains.

4) Dell is our platinum sponsor and they’ll be talking about some new hardware they’re rolling out for big data computing and putting on display at the show.

5) Our CEO and co-founder will be talking about our approach to harnessing the power of big data and giving a glimpse of the future from Aster Data.

6) Other sponsors include Amazon Web Services, Informatica, and a new partner of ours, Impetus.

Hope to see you at the show.
