The industry is promoting Big Data. As Big Data is a relativity new field is that every company or academic department has a different definition of what Big Data actually encompasses. Academicians are challenged with what department should even host a Big Data curriculum. Academicians are still trying to draw a box around how to define the topic so they can begin to operationalize a strategic plan to inject it into an academic curriculum. Join this panel and be ready to offer your input into the above and also hear from industry professionals what is currently needed in the field.
