Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, and Actian Corporation, pioneers of the record-breaking analytical database Vectorwise, will host a series of Webinars throughout Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd October 2012.

The Big Data & BI Best Practices Webinars will examine the phenomenal growth in business data and outline strategies for effectively, efficiently and quickly harnessing and exploring ‘Big Data’ for competitive advantage.

“Back in 2009, IDC research estimated that the total volume of data created and replicated in that single year was enough to fill a stack of DVDs reaching to the moon and back,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “They predict that over 44 times that volume of data will be produced in the year 2020. This Webinar will equip organizations with best practices methodologies, empowering them to harness Big Data, in order to develop a deeper understanding of their business and customers.”

Rabie said that Webinar participants would learn:

  • What Big Data means for organizations of different sizes
  • The best practices for analyzing and monetizing Big Data
  • Tips for communicating insights attained from Big Data


“A recent survey published in the MIT Sloan Management Review business journal found that 60 percent of senior executives admit to collecting more data than they can effectively use,” said Vectorwise General Manager, Fred Gallagher. “If you think that you and your company could benefit from understanding how to better leverage your growing data assets, then this Webinar is a must.”

Gallagher said the Webinar series would suit organizations that:

  • Want to act on more data and data types in shorter timeframes
  • Want to understand the steps involved in achieving Big Data success – both front and back end
  • Thought that taking action from Big Data was too costly

There are three concise forty minute Webinars scheduled throughout Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd October 2012.
