VINT Symposium talks by Harrie Vollaard (Rabobank) on a Big Data roadmap & Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm (SOLV) on privacy

The talks by Harrie Vollaard and Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm are in Dutch. Fortunately there is plenty of content in English for our non-Dutch readers to enjoy as well. You might want to check out talks by David Weinberger or Andrew Keen.

Vollaard, Innovation Manager at Rabobank, explored the role of Big Data in being the New Gold Rush. As for relevance: Big Data is supposed to be the new virtual wave. And for insight: Big Data might well be the new decisive decision tool we all are waiting for. Finally efficiency: Big data simply shouts for a new IT infrastructure consolidation phase. But how will this all play out in future? Perhaps not that previously ‘Recorded’ at all?
