Last year, Gartner took Big Data out of the Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies but that does not mean that Big Data is dead. On the contrary, Big Data has become more important than ever. New technologies enable organisations to do more with data than ever before and it is completely changing how we work and live. In this keynote, International Big Data Influencer Mark van Rijmenam will share with you three big data trends, including inspiring examples, that will dramatically change your business in the years to come and he will explain why Big Data is more important than ever.
The Internet of Things is radically changing our society and with the emergence of Blockchain, it has become a whole lot interesting. With the Blockchain, connected devices suddenly can be used in completely new ways, thanks to the usage of smart contracts that can be deployed on a blockchain and that can automate many tasks. Devices can start negotiating with each other, they can start making micro- or even pico-payments for services used and thanks to smart contracts, agreements are enforced automatically. Blockchain is revolutionizing the Internet of Things and in his keynote, Van Rijmenam will share insights how Blockchain will do so. He will provide best practices, examples and give you clear takeaways on how you can improve the Internet of Things using the Blockchain.
We live in a world of accelerated change and the 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us. Disruptive Innovations such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, 3D Printing or VR/AR are being developed at an exponential pace. The common denominator of all these innovations? They produce data, lots of it, which can be used to create magical experiences that were unthinkable before. Now it is time to use this data to create products and services that will change the way you work and live, while ensuring your privacy, keeping personal information secure and allowing you to own your data. Let’s build this future together, one block at a time.
We live in exponential times and simply having a digital strategy focused on continuous innovation is no longer enough to thrive in a constantly changing world. In order to transform an organisation and contribute to building a secure and rewarding networked society, collaboration among employees, customers, business units and even things is increasingly becoming key. Especially with the availability of new technologies such as big data, blockchain and artificial intelligence, organisations now need, more than ever before, to focus on bringing together the different stakeholders in order to co-create the future. Big data empowers customers and employees, blockchain enables peer-to-peer collaboration, while artificial intelligence creates new human-machine interactions. In this keynote, Van Rijmenam will discuss how big data, blockchain and AI will change collaboration and in doing so enable a networked society.
We live in an ever-changing world and the strategic challenge that organisations face is to continuously adapt their strategy to this constantly, rapidly and unpredictably changing environment. Technology can help organisations do so and enable leaders to be the change within their business (unit) to remain competitive. This keynote will discuss three of these technologies that can enable leaders to deal with the changing customer landscape and how they can innovate and lead the pack. These technologies are: Big Data Analytics, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. Together, these three technologies change how we do business and they are the holy grail of the organisation of tomorrow. Those leaders that understand these technologies can become a catalyst for creating and driving change within their business unit.
“Gerry als presentatrice en trainer werkt verrassend goed! De mensen stappen uit hun eigen patronen en denkwereld. Hierdoor kan sneller tot de kern worden doorgedrongen. Dat heeft deels te maken met dat Gerry niet standaard is, maar voor een minstens zo groot deel met haar vaardigheden. Gerry beheerst de materie, gaat lastige vraagstukken niet uit de weg, betrekt iedereen en leidt de bijeenkomst strak maar ook met een knipoog. Uniek!”

"Mark is very knowledgeable on the subject of Big Data and has the capability of explaining complex matter in laymen’s terms. I have worked with him in different settings, most recently organizing a business event where Mark was the main speaker. The roadmap he spoke about, from his book ‘Think Bigger’, has proven to help organizations in developing their own strategy. Mark is a great presenter who is able to show the audience where we are at today and also gives the public an insight into a possible and very likely future. He is ranked as one of the top Big Data influencers for a good reason. If you have a strategic Big Data challenge or an event around Big Data I can highly recommend Mark."
"I know Mark a true expert in the field of Big Data, 'the oil of the 21st century'. Mark was one of the key note speakers at the National Publishing Day 2014, organized by the dutch b2b platform Mediafacts. His 45 minute speech on how publishers should strategically approach 'Big Data' was well received; it got high scores in our post event online summary. Mark knows the way in the complicated 'Big Data' landscape and is able to serve companies from different sectors well when the aim is setting up a Big Data strategy and providing the means to implement it."
"I invited Mark to join one of our International Congress like main speaker, BigData2015 World Insights. As a person he is great to treat, responsable and compromised human. As a leader he shared his knowledge with all attendees and us like organizers. After the event the attendees satisfaction survey showed Mark had one of the best congress conferences and the majority of them wanted him back for our next congress version. This shows the professional and important knowledge he can share. His pitch involve people and invite them to connect with the congress topic."
"In januari 2013 heeft Mark van Rijmenam gesproken op de nieuwjaarsreceptie van de Kennisalliantie. Met flair sprak hij over Big Data. Aan de hand van diverse concrete voorbeelden maakte hij duidelijk dat Big Data al lang geen sciencefiction meer is maar realiteit.
Ondanks het lastige onderwerp wist hij de 150 aanwezigen helder uit te leggen wat Big Data is, en wat het kan betekenen voor organisaties. Met een ogenschijnlijk gemak wist hij de diverse spontane vragen uit het publiek te beantwoorden.
Zijn verhaal was duidelijk gestructureerd met tal van interessante feiten waarmee hij het belang van Big Data duidelijk maakte. De vele voorbeelden die hij noemde maakte het voor de aanwezigen tastbaar en begrijpelijk. Veel gehoorde reacties waren dat ze hierdoor inzagen wat de potentie van Big Data is, en wat de impact er van is op de organisateis en de maatschappij.
Na zijn verhaal bleven de aanwezigen nog lang naprotan voordat zij geïnspireerd naar huis gingen."
