More importantly, for KM practitioners, how do functional parts of an organization turn Big Data into meaningful information, and eventually actionable knowledge?  This month we are linking up with the Illinois Technology Association to learn how marketers find meaning in key Big Data metrics and insights, as well as their approach to coordinating and collaborating internally and externally to sow and reap greater value. 

Join us for an early morning panel along with the members of ITA in the new TechNexus space in the Civic Opera building.
