Here come the IBM experts! Here’s one our PASS BA Conference speakers, Richard Lee, sharing his expertise on the topic of data privacy. Richard is a well-respected influencer and strategist in data leadership, and we are delighted to have him join us at the event. Richard Lee is on of IBM’s Honours list as a Big Data and Analytics Hero, as well as on of their Champions.
Richard joins another IBM superstar, James Kobielus, who will be talking about Big Data. James G Kobielus is an industry veteran. He serves as IBM’s big data evangelist; as senior program director for product marketing in big data analytics, and as editor-in-chief of IBM Data Magazine. Kobielus spearheads IBM’s thought leadership activities in Big Data, Hadoop, cognitive computing, enterprise data warehousing, and advanced analytics. Basically, he is an expert in a variety of facets of big data.

I have been lucky enough to meet Richard in person recently and we had a great conversation. I’m looking forward to meeting James as well; we’ve spoken on the phone. I learned things from conversing with both of them, and I’m sure that attendees will gain inspirational and practical advice from both of them.
