The 3rd edition of the global Big Data Week will debut on the 5th of May in over 30+ cities worldwide as the largest crowd-sourced festival of events, meet-ups, workshops and hackathons focused on the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of data. It will bring together an anticipated 30,000 data practitioners across in 200+ events. This year PwC joins this truly global community for the first time, and organises the Swiss edition of the international event: the SWISS DATA WEEK.
Data connects people and society. It's the backbone of our economies, smarter cities with healthier and better informed citizens. It can help shape our future. The role of data in business, health, science, technology, retail and entertainment will be a key differentiator for the organizations that succeed in the next digital wave. Swiss Data Week educates and creates new opportunities for organizations of all shapes and sizes in understanding what big data and business analytics can do for them now and in the future. We are very excited to be able to lead the development of this one of a kind Swiss initiative.
For a full 5 days we put the topics of Big Data and Business Analytics in focus. From the 5th till the 9th of May we organise close to 45 Sessions in 3 different Swiss cities: Zürich, Bern and Basel. By focusing on specific industries at the different days, we offer an interesting and open platform to many possible interested persons.
