Knowledgent CTO to Speak at MDM & Data Governance Summit

Knowledgent’s own Informationist Christ Blotto will be speaking at the MDM & Data Governance Summit at the Sheraton Times Square in New York City October 5-7. Chris is presenting “MDM in a Big Data World” at the Industry Innovation Lunch on Monday, October 6, from 11:45am to 12:45pm.

“More organizations are looking at Big Data solutions, such as the Data Lake, for managing their data, and their users need to be able to find the data they need when they need it,” explains Mr. Blotto. “As a result, there is a need for an on-demand Data and Analytics as a Service model, one that is not driven by specific analytics projects. MDM is a key enabler of this new paradigm.”

It presents an interesting ideation case study for anyone interested in big data, using datasets from seemingly unrelated fields and sources, or understanding new potential ways to diagnose Alzheimer’s and improve patient care. During the webinar, we’ll discuss how big data analytical disciplines can support the global effort toward identifying key associations – rather than a direct cause – that can help us understand who gets Alzheimer’s, how we treat them, and how we prevent the disease for others by leveraging datasets across life sciences, healthcare, government agencies and academia.
