Finding Gold in Text - There is a lot of commotion surrounding textual data. Come see some real life case studies and see what can be done with text to enhance the decision making capabilities of the corporation.

Big Data:  A Reality Check - Everyone is talking about Big Data but few people are achieving the results that have been promised? This presentation is a common sense reality check.
