19th Infocomm & Media Horizons

Leveraging Analytics to drive Business. Organized by I2R, August 15-16, 2012, Singapore.

Business analytics is all about listening to your data. Data is an organisation's key asset, and analytics is the tool for unlocking the hidden insights from this asset. Analytics is fundamental and essential to drive strategic and operational decisions, and to derive competitive advantage.

Today's data comes in a variety of forms, in massive amounts, and is growing at ever-increasing speed. We are thus faced with the paradigm shift of "Volume, velocity, and variety" of data, which presents unprecedented challenges for analytics. These challenges include the urgency to cope with Big Data, the demand to underpin decision-making, and the pressing need to accurately predict trends at real-time.

The 19th Infocomm and Media Horizons (ICM Horizons) offers an exciting two-day programme with internationally known, high profile analytics pioneers and practitioners. ICM Horizons presents the who's who of Singapore's business analytics industry, and brings together industry thought leaders from Accenture, Deloitte, IBM, Revolution Analytics, SAP, SAS along with analytics practitioners from application verticals such as transportation, logistics, finance, and energy management. Our expert speakers will discuss key aspects of analytics including contemporary challenges, application case studies, pivotal technology trends, the emerging analytics landscape in Singapore, and visionary projections of the future.

ICM Horizons 2012 offers hot-topics tutorials ranging from real-time stream analytics, to Analytics Tool for Big Data, and High Performance Cloud Analytics. ICM Horizons will be co-located with the annual TechFest 2012 of the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). TechFest 2012 will showcase live demos of latest technologies from I2R and includes free admission.
