Presentation: "Panel: How Banks are Managing Their Data"

Time: Wednesday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Robinson/Whitman

How do you manage your data?  In a relational database?  In a NoSQL store?  Do you use CEP technology?  Web services?  What we all are making sense of right now is how to store, share, secure, and scale our data storage for both application consumption as well as analytics.  Business and IT are in the middle of transformation toward real-time and mobile and data management is at the heart of our ability to succeed.  NoSQL, Hadoop, CEP, and more are all born out of the need to do more than the "traditional n-tier stack" can provide.  In this panel, Experts and senior technical leaders from banks such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Morgan Stanley as well as Thomson Reuters will discuss what is driving change in their organizations, where they are on the adoption curve of these new technologies, and what is working and what is not.
