Next week, Reed Smith will host a conference on “Big Data Monetization” at the Quadrus Conference Center in Silicon Valley (8:30-11:30 a.m. PDT). Big Data is a term used to characterize the accumulation of data. Virtually every company, in every industry, is now an information and technology company. Companies run on Big Data, whether it be customer information, employee information, or competitive intelligence. Companies store, share, and use that information in increasingly complex ways, taking advantage of cloud-based solutions and revolutions in analytics, and finding ways to turn these massive databases into revenue. There is no doubt a plethora of opportunities in Big Data, however, using it comes with its own set of risks. The key with monetizing Big Data is striking the balance between risk and reward.
