SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - GoGrid, the leader in Open Data Services (ODS), today announced that its CEO, John Keagy, will speak about how companies can gain greater value from Big Data projects through open orchestration at the upcoming Open Business Conference. The discussion, "Orchestrating Big Data," will take place on May 5 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.

Also on Monday, May 5, GoGrid and Basho, one of its first ODS partners, will co-host The Future of Open Source Fiesta featuring a Cinco de Mayo happy hour in San Francisco.
