Big Data Summit Testimonials

 

Here's what our past attendees had to say:

"The topics were right on target - extremely relevant and, for the most part, incredibly important. Pertinent topics evolve over time, and I think these were very timely. The team that put this together is exceptional: professional, considerate, understanding, friendly, and insightful. I couldn't have asked for more."

CISO

"My most valuable takeaway was seeing the shared perspectives on the state and future of technology in healthcare. In particular, the advantages of applying technology in integrated practice settings, as well as the inherent challenge of gaining efficiency in a more fragmented healthcare marketplace."

SVP IT

"My most valuable take away from the CIO Summit was new networking contacts at several companies. The think tanks had great subjects and speakers. I was impressed with the attendees; I made several new connections with CIOs I did not know from other companies."

SVP & CIO

"I think some of the sessions have been very strong, and also some of the informal interactions have been almost as valuable as the sessions themselves. I think it's a very nice high-level group, small enough for people to really have conversations."

Director

"Coming to this conference, I was a little dubious. However this has turned out to be the highlight of the year (in events)."
