News Release: Tabor Communications

SAN DIEGO, CA – April 14, 2016 – The Leverage Big Data 2016 summit, the market-leading, live hosted summit aimed at exploring the panoply of Big Data phenomena and how businesses are leveraging these technologies to establish ROI, today announced that Paxata has joined the summit as a sponsor.

Leverage Big Data 2016, scheduled for June 5-7, 2016 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort & Spa in North San Diego, California, is an exclusive, invitation-only, hosted summit designed for senior business and data technology professionals who want to understand how current and future Big Data technology trends will impact their business vision and strategies. This summit will offer strategic-level insights into what enterprise leaders should do to harness Big Data technology solutions for maximum business value.

Before Paxata, business analysts and data scientists spent 80% or more of their time trying to go from raw data to ready information they needed for analytics. Paxata is the first Adaptive Data Preparation solution that combines an interactive application designed to automate data integration and data quality, with a platform built for governance, collaboration and scale.

“While companies are drowning in data, business teams are thirsting for information they can actually use. Organizations typically spend 80% of their time preparing data – trying to transform it from raw, messy, redundant, fragmented data to something worth analyzing,” said Prakash Nanduri, CEO and Co-founder of Paxata. “We are singularly focused on removing the barriers of data preparation and we are thrilled that events like Big Data 2016 give us the forum to connect with visionary IT and Business leaders who want to derive the most value from their big data and BI investments by adopting a Connected Information strategy.”

Tying together Big Data and advanced IT solutions, the Leverage Big Data 2016 program caters toward fostering community and discussion, including educational keynote tracks with open dialogue segues, boardroom style case study sessions with cross-vertical peer groups, and one-on-one solutions briefings with leading suppliers. Executives leave armed with information and ideas on how to further their strategy and best maximize their returns for their own corporate advanced IT investments.

“Big data is transforming not only our businesses, it’s becoming the linchpin in establishing how we interact with the world around us, from sending a tweet to trading stocks,” says Tom Tabor, CEO of Tabor Communications. “Organizations can no longer afford to pass up the sea of opportunities made possible with the data deluge, but the path to embracing the Information Age is not always a straightforward one. This is where Leverage Big Data steps in – to provide organizations with the knowledge and opportunity they need to lock down ROI on their Big Data investment. And with so many industry leaders joining Leverage Big Data in support of this message, we couldn’t be more excited for this year’s event.

The conference is hosted by Datanami through a partnership between Tabor Communications and nGage Events, the leader in host-based, invitation-only business events. The summit is fully paid for qualified attendees (including flight, hotel, meals and summit badge).
