More than 900 big data practitioners, technologists and executives will gather at Structure Data in New York March 19-20 to investigate how big data can drive business success, and Microsoft will be there to take part in the conversation.

Around the world, big data and big compute are coming together to help enterprises and organizations create better products, make cities run smoother, advance disease prevention and treatments, and much more.

Today, Microsoft is working with customers to do just this. In the process, we’ll bring the power of big data to a billion people – connecting companies to previously untouched data sources and enabling everyone to gain insights through familiar and powerful tools that now simply live in Microsoft Excel.

At the event, John Platt, distinguished scientist at Microsoft Research, will share the latest on Microsoft’s work in machine learning in a fireside chat.  We’ll also have data experts on hand to give attendees a taste of how easy it is to turn big data into beautiful visualizations and insights.  Attendees will also get a peek at how Microsoft’s Cybercrime Center is using data to fight worldwide organized crime and BotNets. (Get a sneak peek by watching the video below!)
