The BIG DATA Revolution

There is a new war coming – over the future’s most valuable asset. Big Data, once just the domain of technology professionals, will soon be the number one issue for all business leaders. Consumers are producing more of it, marketers are starting to leverage it, and governments are seeking to control it – and most importantly, business leaders will be asked to make decisions based on it.

The real Big Data revolution is not just about the amount of data that has to be processed, but a mindset change about how data gets used in the enterprise.

With original research, practical evaluations of disruptive strategies and case studies from some of the world’s most innovative firms, Mike Walsh will give you the roadmap you need to set your Big Data strategy in place for 2014. He offers cutting-edge information that each type of audience member needs to hear.

FUTURETAINMENT – Yesterday The World Changed – Now It’s Your Turn

Based on Mike Walsh’s bestselling book, FUTURETAINMENT is a fast paced tour of the latest technologies, global trends, and case studies that will forever change the way you think about your relationship with your customers.

FLEX – Business Re-Imagined

What does it take to lead a 21st century company? New technology is not only an opportunity to improve productivity, it invites us to ask a much bigger question – can we re-imagine the way we do business?

WORLD NEXT – Your Roadmap To The Global Future

Social unrest, economic turmoil, rapid technological change – we live in a world seemingly dominated by crisis. And yet if you look more closely, you may also see a different set of patterns giving rise to new markets, new consumers and new ways to do business.

The future is already here, you just need to know where to look. Disruptive mobile technology from China to India’s low cost business models, next generation mobile banking in Africa and social consumerism in South America – innovation is shifting to a new geography.

How we interact, transact and entertain ourselves in the future will be shaped by a billion new consumers from emerging markets. WORLD NEXT is your roadmap to understanding and accessing the growth potential of tomorrow’s world.
