Intel IT's strategy, application and technology focus and the future of Analytics

Register Now!

Presented by John David Miller, Bill Giard, Julie Moore


Intel IT has several initiatives underway that address the changing complexities of our data/technology environment:

The computing environment is expanding across multiple form factors, operating systems, and devices with an ever increasing focus on improving the User Experience. Intel IT has taken on a bold objective to embrace new user experiences. Over the next year we will be focusing on Social media, Multi-OS/Browser, Mobile, Analytics and Cloud capabilities; all to increase user productivity and enable Intel's business.

Hadoop and other "Big Data" tools are transforming businesses everywhere: suddenly Internet-scale data can be stored and analyzed with relative ease. But the answers to many strategic, high-value problems are complex and open-ended. Typically they are not found directly in any one data source (no matter how big) but are rather synthesized, by learning from and building off of multiple sources (including what one already knows), and weaving these together with new ideas & insights into the context of the problem at hand. Graph databases and graph computation engines, along with new "reactive" programming models and interactive visualization, are starting to address these problems of complexity at scale, and are shaping up to be the next Big Thing in big data - and potentially even more disruptive than Hadoop.

Hear more about Intel's It strategy, application and technology focus, and the future of analytics.
