With close to 90% of Fortune 500 companies investing in Big Data projects, the commercial market has already witnessed the benefits of investing in large-scale data processing. The U.S. Government has realized the potential in Big Data and launched the long-term 2012 Big Data Initiative, investing $250 million a year in Big Data among its federal agencies, in addition to similar efforts within the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Energy, the Intelligence Community, NASA and more.

The Big Data for Defense and Government 2013 addresses the latest government challenges, strategies and initiatives relating to Big Data Analytics, as well as the state of science in Big Data employments and technologies. Hear from those closest to these developments to learn what’s actually happening on the ground.

We are also very excited to host a Data Visualization Focus Day! Engage with leading DHS, DoD and DOE scientists who are at the forefront of data visualization advancements in the context of defense and government.
