Embarcadero invites you to a breakfast briefing for the financial services industry, which will examine some complexity around Big Data and what it really means. Many vendors claim almost magical capabilities for their 'Big Data' products, but the reality is that successful analysis comes down to understanding your algorithms and understanding your data. Learn how data modelling is integral to this.
