For Immediate Release:Indianapolis, IN and Washington D.C.— Today Indianapolis-based Conference Ventures, LLC, creators and host of the Indy Big Data Conference, now entering it’s fourth year, announced an expansion of its flagship Big Data Conference into Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia, also known as the DMV markets. The inaugural Washington Big Data Conference will take place on Monday, October 2, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in downtown D.C.
The decision to expand into the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia markets came after the federal government began triggering several big data projects. According to the Conference Ventures CEO, Christine Van Marter, “We have sponsors in Indianapolis who also have offices in the D.C. area, eager to secure business with the federal government and private employers. The best way for us to do that is to create a Conference that brings these parties together to facilitate learning, networking, and hopefully some business deals.”
According to Van Marter, the Washington Big Data Conference will offer something for both the technologist and business audience alike, “The Conference will include a general session, breakout sessions, and an exhibit hall. We have already secured some experts as speakers for the Conference including Daniel Morgan, Chief Data Officer for the United States Department of Transportation talking about Data, Access and Partnerships from both current and future state. Plus, Yuri Bogdanov, Director of Engineering for Capital One, the known leaders in big data from a financial perspective, will be presenting in D.C. about how Capital One is disrupting the financial services industry using big data.”
Both the Indy and Washington Conferences include a Visualization Challenge; where this year, sponsors will be asked to track the area’s opioid abuse and identify – using the data sets provided and any additional data sets they uncover – up to 10 unique contributing factors to the abuse. Sponsors will have up to 10 minutes to unveil and visually depict their solution. Conference Ventures will then donate the outcomes to the societal organizations that can most benefit from the outcomes.
As society and businesses become more data driven, these conferences become increasingly more important. Attendees will learn to apply analytics,artificial intelligence, deep and machine learning to big data,in order to make better business decisions.
Both Conferences anticipate an audience made up of CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, CMOs, CDO’s, data scientists, analysts, architects, students of all levels and more. The Conferencesoffer heavily discounted pricing for students to be able to attend and benefit.
