CVTA and Oracle present the
 
Big Data Workshop
 Acquiring, Managing, Shaping and Using Data
 
8:00 am– 12:00 pm, June 18, 2013,
Polk’s Facilities, Southfield, Michigan
      
Workshop Goals
 
Explore the Big Data ecosystem, understand what it is, how to acquire and manage the data, how to transform it into useful knowledge and how to use that knowledge.
   
The Big Data revolution is at the forefront of the latest advancements in IT technology that have brought to us real-time social media, internet searching, as well as multiple innovations in a wide variety of industry sectors ranging from retail, banking, healthcare, etc., to Government and homeland security. The Automotive industry is not the exception.  Big Data technologies enable automotive companies leverage new sources of data already available from the manufacturing process, all the way down the chain to the comments entered by the end customer who purchased an automobile at her or her Facebook page.  All the information collected along this process can be analyzed and cross referenced using Big Data technologies to reduce manufacturing costs, improve quality, provide accurate troubleshooting and preventive maintenance, warranty and recall analysis, and many more.
  
Moderators will assist in the discussion on the different uses of Big Data, from mission critical use for production and performance to data mining for use in business decision-making processes and demographic analysis. In this workshop we will discuss what the data is, how it is collected and managed, identify examples of using, analyzing and shapping data for competitive comparisons, to determine production needs, as well as examples from the automotiv, insurance and fleet industries.
