I know there is a choice of conferences and events, but this one strikes me as very interesting. The thing that (amongst a whole bunch of other interesting sessions) strikes me as extremely interesting is the extra day with a master class on Information Architecture in the "big data world". Officially this is called Oracle Information Management and Big Data Reference architecture, and I think we - as a community - can all use some more foundation on information management. Or maybe, a nice refresher for those of us who were in the weeds of our daily jobs?
On top of the master class, there are a whole load of interesting sessions. Some are really on the consumer side, some are focused on the back-end, but I think both perspectives are very useful.
Some of the sessions that look very promising to me (in Brighton) are "A journey into big data and analytics - Liberty Global" and in either location anything on Big Data Discovery - really cool stuff, and something I think will change how we derive value from big data.
So, where do you go? Brighton and Atlanta of course...
PS. I'm hearing our own Reiner Zimmermann is doing a keynote in Brighton!
