IEEE Computer Society, the global community for technology leaders, will host a one-day gathering of well-known data analytics authorities who will explore all aspects of analytics, including building a data-driven culture, launching data platforms, and ensuring privacy. The Rock Stars of Data Analytics conference on 21 October in San Jose, California, will introduce attendees to case studies and discussions from leading experts working in top data-driven companies.

The speakers include:

* Grady Booch, Chief Scientist of Software Engineering, IBM

Speakers will discuss the trends, the challenges, the solutions, and how they've used big data analytics to:

* respond to changing business conditions

* make decisions using 100 percent of data in every decision rather than instinctive guesses

* develop a big data platform that handles all types of data and analytics
