GoodData CEO Roman Stanek to Deliver Keynote "State of the Union: Big Data 2013" at Computerworld Open Business Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - GoodData® today announced that its CEO and founder Roman Stanek will deliver the Big Data keynote at Computerworld Open Business Conference, the premier event for open source solutions and business, on April 30, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. The conference, "Cloud. Data. Mobile. Open Source.," is expected to attract senior business leaders, decision-makers, developers, attorneys and venture capitalists.

During his keynote, "Big Data in 2013: State of the Union," Stanek will offer a reality check on who is adopting big data, what needs to occur in the market, and where big data usage is headed.

Companies are spending billions of dollars as they work to harness Big Data's analytics and business intelligence capabilities to help them gain the insight they need to make smarter decisions. Businesses ultimately seek ways to monetize their data -- to uncover new sources of revenue, profit and competitive advantage.

"Before they can understand the true impact of Big Data, companies must first comprehend how Big Data works in the real world," said Stanek. "Big Data isn't just for large companies. With today's cloud-based apps and platforms, any size business can find new ways to monetize big data, once they know how to make the best use of it."
