Geert will introduce us to the world of Big Data. He will talk about both business, technical and financial drivers for Big Data, about the use cases for big data, how to become a data driven organisation and how a real-time big data analytic system could be build.

Big Data and Information Governance
Jan Henderyckx Partner, Envizion
Jan is a highly rated independent consultant, speaker and author with more than 20 years experience in the field of information architecture and relational databases. As a consultant Jan has witnessed the inner workings of a broad range of companies.

In comes a tsunami of Big Data and the question that arises is: “Can we still use the same old medicine as a useful Information Governance to tackle this new problem?” The answer is obviously “No” as a lot of the recipes in Information Governance are based on our span of control which is significantly different with most of the Big Data sources. Try governing the #’s in tweets. Jan will focus on handling the veracity and variety aspects of Big Data and he will introduce a method of governing Big Data.
