Leverage Big Data ’15 – Data-Driven Infrastructure: The Engines of Big Data

Leverage Big Data 2015  is scheduled for March 16 - 18 at the Ponte Vedra Beach Inn & Club, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Leverage Big Data Summit is an invitation-only hosted summit designed to bring leaders in advanced computing together to discuss the infrastructure challenges that organizations face as they navigate the build-out of Big Data systems. This summit provides exclusive opportunity for technology leaders in the process of refining and scaling their infrastructures for big data workflows to share their experiences and learn from peers and solution providers actively engaged in addressing these challenges.

Produced by Datanami, a premier online portal that serves as a trusted source for coverage and analysis of advanced big data and performance-tuned systems and software, along with nGage Events, the leader in hosted model events, the Leverage Big Data '14 Summit will provide an in-depth look at the diverse array of infrastructure approaches in Big Data.

During Leverage Big Data '14, we emphasized that big data infrastructure means far more than simply looking closely at hardware (or software) components without context.

At Leverage Big Data '15 prequalified attendees will once again meet and learn from leaders in the Big Data space and come away with practical knowledge on everything from converged systems and boxed appliance solutions to storage and compute and how these systems can help them better extract value from their data (and data environment).

To ensure that Leverage offers the highest degree of relevancy for attendees, only senior executives responsible for the purchasing and implementation are invited.  This exclusive format allows industry leaders to connect with peers to network, share stories, experiences, and solution possibilities. All qualified executives receive a full participation package that includes travel, hotel accommodations, meals and networking activities. This ensures a cost-effective and quality peer-to-peer experience for attendees.  Leverage has limited attendance, and is designed around an intimate group concept.



Agenda Highlights

Focused on the infrastructure challenges organizations face in the modern advanced computing environment, Leverage Big Data '15 will open the hood on multiple systems, approaches, and management frameworks to give engaged, qualified users an inside look at the engines of Big Data.

Leverage Big Data '15 is dedicated to providing a rich understanding on the comprehensive array of infrastructure approaches to those hungry for advanced enterprise computing solutions. This will be facilitated through the peer-to-peer sharing of experiences and infrastructure needs in an intimate atmosphere.
