Join Us on Monday, April 11th at 6pm for “The Future of Big Data” Tech Talk at Microsoft New England R&D Center featuring Corporate Vice President, T.K. Rengarajan.
We live in an extraordinary time for data. In our mobile-first world, we have a multitude of devices — phones, IoT sensors, computers — capturing every step, touch, decision and action we take. In a cloud-first world, we have incredible data storage and processing capabilities to capture this torrent of data, analyze & combine them, share insights with others, and drive automated learning. The result is new productivity experiences where we are limited only by our data dreams and ability to imagine value from the data we possess.
