Here is more information about Big Data TechCon:

Plan now to attend Big Data TechCon, March 31-April 2 in Boston, to learn HOW-TO accommodate the terabytes and petabytes of data from your Web logs, social media interactions, scientific research, transactions, sensors and financial records. Learn how to index, search and summarize Big Data. Learn how to empower employees, inform managers, and reach out to customers.

The tangible benefits of Big Data analytics are well known. You likely understand the "why" of Big Data. Big Data TechCon isn't a "why" conference. It's the HOW-TO conference for Big Data. Practical tutorials. Technical classes.

Big Data TechCon is technology-agnostic. The tutorials and classes apply to Big Data in your data center or in the cloud, from hosted environments to your own servers. The sessions apply to relational databases, NoSQL databases, unstructured data, flat files and data feeds.

Learn from the smartest, hardest-working faculty in the Big Data universe in a way you never could by reading a book or watching a webinar. The faculty have real-world experience that you can tap into, whether you use Java, C++, .NET or Javascript; whether you like MySQL, SQL Server, DB2 or Oracle; whether you love or hate Hadoop; and whether you are looking at dozens of terabytes or hundreds of petabytes.

Mingle with fellow attendees. The first Boston show hosted 700 delegates from 27 nations. Be inspired by keynotes and the industry's top expert speakers. Be impressed by the hottest Big Data tools in the Expo Hall. It's all waiting for you. The show is produced by BZ Media - publisher of SD Times, the leading magazine for software development managers.
