ATLANTA, Ga., April 19 — Emcien Corp. announced today the media partnership between the 2013 Big Data Week Atlanta and Datanami, a leading news portal providing insights, analysis, and information about emerging trends and solutions in big data. 2013 Big Data Week Atlanta takes place April 22-28, 2013, and is hosted in partnership with Emcien Corp., an Atlanta-based pioneer in automatic pattern detection for big data.
Part of a collaboration of community events taking place globally, the week’s events focus upon the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of big data in 28 cities, including San Francisco, London, Shanghai, Berlin, and Moscow, and – for the first time – Atlanta.
"I am looking forward to pushing the big data conversation into new arenas by emphasizing some of the real-world applications of the various technologies we tend to classify under this ever-growing banner”, said Nicole Hemsoth, Sr. Contributing Editor of Datanami. “By examining what some of the large-scale users of data-intensive computing technologies are doing on both the hardware and software fronts, I hope to shed some new light on the intersection of big data and some other emerging areas, including high performance computing."
Hemsoth is a featured speaker during the celebration’s kickoff event, “The Future with Big Data”, taking place 6:00 p.m. on April 22. Hemsoth joins fellow big data thought leaders Steve Lohr, The New York Times, Michael Hickins from The Wall Street Journal’s CIO Journal, along with executives from McKesson, NCR, UPS and SunTrust to discuss the direction and impact of big data across multiple industries.
"The response from the city of Atlanta and the tremendous media coverage around Big Data Week has been overwhelming,” said Radhika Subramanian, CEO, Emcien, the partner organization of 2013 Big Data Week Atlanta. “Nicole Hemsoth has been a driving force in communicating the impact of big data and the possibilities around this emerging trend. I’m pleased that Datanami has accepted our invitation to partner with Emcien for the 2013 Big Data Week Atlanta.”
