Over 500 executives, entrepreneurs, investors, and thought leaders across business and technology attended the Data 2.0 Summit this week in San Francisco with CloudTimes being a media sponsor at the show.
With over 100 speakers from Microsoft, Google, HP, Salesforce, Data.com, Mozilla and LinkedIn, the Data 2.0 Summit explored topics around Big Data, Social Data, and Open Data driving the next technology revolution in Cloud Data and why Fortune 500 companies are investing hundreds of billions of dollars in their big data strategies.
Geoff Domoracki, co-founder of the Data 2.0 Summit said “A lot of companies have been using the term ‘Big Data’ to define a revolution of finding value in the new abundance of data. What the business and technology community needs to realize is that ‘Big Data’ is not just about analyzing private company data but about an avalanche in ‘Cloud Data’ from social sharing activity and tweets to open government initiatives and data cooperatives. We are all becoming members of a larger online data economy.”
Spinnakr won the Startup Pitch Competition where Ten data startups competed for over $20,000 in products and services, judged by investors from August Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, True Ventures, among other VC firms. View the announcement at the summit.
