CREATING VALUE FROM BIG DATA: The Bloomberg Big Data Conference will explore how big data and the power of analytics in the cloud can be exploited as a great transformer for how leaders think and how businesses innovate. Organizations—both public and private—are grappling with the challenge of how best to take advantage of this new capability, while trying to make wise technology investments that pay off in terms of productivity gains and operational value.
How can executives build a business case for big data investments? How do smart companies quantify benefits and hidden costs from failure to monetize data assets? We’ll examine how big data can be optimized in three key sectors: healthcare, energy and financial services. The conference will look at advances in storing, accessing and analyzing massive amounts of data, the emerging issues industry and government leaders face in implementing big data strategies, and identify best practices that apply across industries.

|9:05 am||GOING BEYOND HYPE: BIG DATA’S BIG VALUE
Big data was one of 2012’s buzz words as organizations and government agencies grapple with the challenges and opportunities of leveraging the explosion of data. Bloomberg Government estimates the amount of data will grow by a factor of 50 from 2010 to 2020. In 2013, the focus is expected to be on unlocking its vast potential value. In this session, we’ll explore the potential of big data analytics in the cloud. How can decision-makers in businesses and federal agencies become convinced that the benefits of leveraging big data will outweigh investments?
When faced with oceans of data and many competing opportunities, how can companies and organizations set priorities? Where have companies found the largest return on investment? What unexpected benefits and challenges have been unearthed?
We’ll discuss why it makes sense for organizations to move to data lakes – and how to make that transition. Who should be involved in the effort – CTOs and CIOs, who are driven by costs, or data scientists, who are motivated by outcome?

|9:45 am||RETHINKING RISKS AND OPPORTUNITIES IN BIG DATA: HEALTHCARE
How will the Affordable Care Act (ACA) re-shape the healthcare industry? The Affordable Care Act has provided big data with perhaps its biggest challenges and opportunities as applied to the healthcare industry. .
The ACA requires an estimated 30 million previously uninsured Americans to have coverage by January 14, 2014, and they can begin “shopping” for health insurance on October 1, 2013. This is when the Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) opens for business. Think Priceline for health benefits and insurers, but with greater complexity and sensitivities. All these are ripe for big data innovation – from monitoring outcomes to catching fraudulent claims, digitizing medical records to converting stored data for public use. We’ll examine the best ways to manage and leverage the volume, velocity and variability in healthcare data.
What opportunities will consumer outreach, price transparency, rebates, audits, benefits management, and compliance, among others, provide? How can big data drive value for insurers and pharmaceutical companies and other businesses on the one hand, and patients and government agencies on the other? We’ll also discuss privacy and security issues involved in creating a central repository of sensitive real-time information.

|10:25 am||RETHINKING RISKS AND OPPORTUNITIES IN BIG DATA: ENERGY AND UTILITIES
Big data can spell a big difference in how companies and consumers generate, use and manage energy needs. Technology innovations are allowing energy companies to go farther and drill deeper than ever before, extracting not just oil, but massive quantities of data along with it, ripe for tagging, analyzing, applying and sharing in countless ways that can transform the way we generate, use and control our energy needs.
In homes across the country, smart meters are recording electricity usage by the hour, sometimes more, generating an unprecedented amount of energy data. Data from smart grids is providing utilities with new capabilities for forecasting demand, manage reactive power, preventing outages, optimizing unit commitment and much more. We’ll examine the business opportunities that the exponential growth of unstructured data – driven by the explosion of smart meters, mobile devices, multiple integration points, commoditization of computer power and storage – can provide to energy and utility companies, transmission operators, distributors and consumers alike. What policies and incentives exist for big data in these sectors?

|11:05 am||INNOVATIONS IN STORAGE, ACCESS AND ANALYSIS: THE DATA LAKE
To unlock the power of big data means organizations have to take advantage of the immense storage ability of the cloud, but in a completely new way. An organization’s repository of information can no longer be stored in rigid, regimented data structures, but rather should be consolidated in a vast pool, or “data lake.” Every inquiry and information from multiple data sources can make use of this entire pool and is all available at once. Without data silos, there is no need to integrate them. What results is not chaotic but rather a rich diversity of information. We’ll examine how data lakes are moving beyond just storage to a medium expressly designed to foster connections in data.
Leaders in this field, from Google and Amazon, to the US Intelligence Agencies are taking advantage of this innovative approach. This panel will explore the possibilities that data lakes hold for business and government, what it takes to put one in place, and what the downstream benefits are to both the bottom line and the top line.

|11:45 am||RETHINKING RISKS AND OPPORTUNITIES IN BIG DATA: FINANCIAL SERVICES
Has big data delivered its promise of big opportunities to the financial services industry or has it remained a myth? As banks struggle to maintain profitability in an era of low interest rates, how can they leverage the vast troves of unstructured and structured data mined from billions of customer transactions to better understand clients, improve customer-bank communication, target offers and services according to needs, increase revenue, manage risk and detect fraud – all in faster, more nimble ways and in real time?
Once data is gathered and transformed, how can banks apply data on liquidity risk, market risk, or credit risk to improve the bottom line? We’ll examine new tools, capabilities and finding to squeeze the most out of big data. How can big data be used to increase regulatory reporting timelines and improve data quality? What are the challenges to sharing information among banks in areas where there is no competitive advantage, including compliance and regulatory reporting? Will big data transform the way the industry is regulated – from mandating to monitoring?

|12:25 pm||SYSTEMIC RISK: SECURING BIG DATA
If securing data from nine billion devices connected to the internet sounds daunting, what more when 50 billion devices are connected by 2020? How are organizations evaluating security controls effectively? We’ll examine the state of big data security and whether failure to secure it constitutes a systemic risk. What new types of cyber fraud will emerge as storage and access risks associated with big data analytics are exploited? How does an organization protect privacy information in a data lake? We’ll look at how security teams are protecting big data and at the same time using big data to detect security threats.
What are the policy and regulatory issues to consider? We’ll discuss the privacy, security and transparency issues that are preventing government and companies from maximizing the benefits of big data.
How should information security evolve moving forward? We’ll discuss how organizations can transition from being reactive to establishing intelligence-driven strategies and risk-based programs to protect data wherever they reside. And who should have responsibility for securing big data – the IT department, risk management or chief data officer?
