NewVantage Partners Announces "Big Data" Executive Breakfasts

Boston and New York Roundtable Discussions Mark Publication of CIO Update Article

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - NewVantage Partners, a boutique management consulting firm that serves as trusted advisors and senior consultants to a blue-chip roster of Fortune 1000 clients, today announced two upcoming executive thought-leadership roundtable breakfasts which mark the publication of a June 30, 2011 CIO Update article on the theme of big data by NewVantage founding partner Dr. Paul Barth.

Big Data: Principles for a Successful Data Management Strategy

Big data has been called "the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity" - The Economist (May 26, 2011). Dr. Barth will lead an executive thought-leadership roundtable discussion based on his CIO Update article, "The Four Principles of a Successful Data Strategy," and his work helping Fortune 500 companies address data complexity and business value over the past two decades.

The sessions will be held in Boston on July 20 and in New York on July 27. Senior business and technology executives representing a diverse group of Fortune 500 firms will discuss principles for establishing a successful data strategy -- one that requires change and coordination across the enterprise, with business and IT joined at the hip. The discussion will consider examples of how organizations can align and focus their data strategy by breaking initiatives into manageable projects with a measurable business benefit.

"Despite tremendous advances in information technology of the last decade, large companies struggle to access, manage, and leverage the information that they create in their day-to-day processes," noted Dr. Barth. "The rapid growth in the number of IT systems used to operate a company has resulted in a complex and fragmented landscape, where potentially valuable data lays trapped in fragmented, inconsistent silos of applications, databases, and organizations. Experience has shown that this is not a technology problem -- it is a business problem."
