Why Big Data matters: The experts weigh in

To sort through the massive hype around Big Data, we've got a killer panel of experts. See the live-streamed event on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 4:30pm ET.

Arguably the hottest topic in IT, Big Data risks being drowned in hype the way "Cloud Computing" was just a few years ago. To help IT leaders sort out the real value, potential, and capabilities of Big Data, we've put together a superstar panel of experts to break it down.

The panel is part of our TechLines series from ZDNet and TechRepublic and the event is called "Big Data Debunked -- Finding the Data Signals." It is being held on Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 4:30 p.m. ET at the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in New York City. It will also be streamed live on ZDNet.

ZDNet Editor in Chief Larry Dignan will serve as the moderator. He said, "We will examine the use cases, challenges in deployment, leading industries, trust issues and return on investment around Big Data."

The panelists will be (click the names to read profiles of each one):

Was? If it's happily bobbing about on it's sea of unknowns, big data got in front of it and I never noticed.

Unfortunately I can't listen in due to a project call, will there be a summary/recap posted later in the day or a way to watch a recorded version of the webinar?
