Ever wondered what Big Data is all about? What is it and how to go about managing it? If so this half day workshop is the perfect place to learn!

Information Managers, of all sorts, are still tasked with providing governance structures to traditional formats, such as paper and Microsoft Office records; however, a growing body of structured and semi-structured information resides in our enterprise applications that are primarily unmanaged.

RIM professionals are encountering the collection of big data at an unprecedented rate. While big data can contribute to the successful achievement of corporate goals, it can also cause many issues, such as dirty data (problematic for analytics), increased storage costs, and so forth.

This morning workshop will provide:

  • A detailed description of Big Data and how its accumulated
  • The opportunities and challenges surrounding Big Data
  • Options for managing the storage and life-cycle of Big Data

The workshop will conclude with case scenarios provided to small groups. The groups will discuss and determine a structured solution for managing the data throughout its lifecycle for peer feedback.

The workshop will be presented by three City of Edmonton experts in distinct fields that collaborate on managing Big Data in IT, Life-Cycle Management and Information Governance.

*A breakfast buffet and light snacks will be provided throughout the morning session. Please email any dietary restrictions to
