Why Should you Attend the 2017 Symposium:

This educational Symposium brings together government, military, academia, and technology providers to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities surrounding Big Data. By effectively tackling massive data sets with more advanced predictive analytic methods, the US Government can forecast and enhance decision-making to adequately support the force.

In today's world, there is an insurmountable quantity of data with the potential to be turned into useful or ''actionable data.'' When such data is effectively exploited, the nation can form more targeted decisions. These data-driven decisions are applicable to every organization's mission.

This Symposium will feature senior level discussions surrounding updates and new developments on technologies and predictive analytical approaches to effectively manipulate large data sets. Leaders will discuss the significant benefits and varying techniques of using predictive analytics to enhance critical decision-making.
