HP Discover, Tim Turner, Director of Technology
I attended HP Discover June 10-14 in Las Vegas. The major themes of the conference were Cloud, Big Data, and Security. These are the hot topics in the industry and HP did great job of telling their story and how they can address the major themes. One of the best examples of real world solutions was talked about during Meg Witman’s keynote address. She brought up Nascar to talk about their Fan and Media Engagement Center and how they are using multiple data feeds from weather, media, and other sources to build a better fan experience. This is a great example of how companies are using big data to get better information from the data they have.
