Seminar: How big is big data?

24 September 2013

15.00 - 17.30 GMT

Capital Tower, Singapore

The incredible and continuous production of – both structured and unstructured – digital data coming from the widespread use of digital devices and on-line systems is pushing business to define Big Data strategies. Machines, devices and networks are constantly producing data which are often simply too voluminous for the human interface to take them in consideration. Increasingly, in the business context the data itself turns out to be the core asset of business transactions.

This seminar will discuss the Big Data revolution, Big Data legal issues and best practices, such as terms of use of unstructured data, management of big data projects, warranties, open-source management, OEM/IPR indemnities, privacy and security.
