Big Data and You

Join HBA Suisse Romande on November 15th at Celgene-Boudry (close to Neuchâtel) to listen and engage with our featured speakers about the different aspects of Big Data, its use in bioscience and Celgene.

Big data analytics is the process of examining large data sets containing a variety of data types to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations, market trends, customer preferences and other useful business information. The analytical findings can lead to more effective marketing, new revenue opportunities, better customer service, improved operational efficiency, competitive advantages over rival organizations and other business or personal benefits. The goal of this event is to cast our eyes to the past, look at today and gaze into the future to share an overview of important elements of Big Data from different perspectives and its potential use and impact.
