NVTC Announces Creation of NEW Big Data and Analytics Committee

Building on the previous work of the NVTC Big Data Task Force and the research report released by NVTC, the George Washington University and Attain LLC in May, NVTC is announcing the creation of a new committee focused on Big Data and Analytics in the region. The NVTC Big Data and Analytics Committee will offer educational, networking, and private-public partnership opportunities, with a focus on applying, leveraging and promoting the region’s unique big data technology and analytics assets, as well as informing and influencing big data policy issues. The Committee’s objective is to stimulate economic growth by promoting the Commonwealth and the region as a national and global center for Big Data and Analytics capabilities, human capital and leading innovation.

Committee Co-chairs Ali Eskandarian of The George Washington University Virginia Science and Technology Campus and Greg Baroni of Attain LLC invite NVTC members interested in participating in this new committee to attend its first official meeting on Friday, Oct. 3 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. For more information, contact NVTC Vice President of Communications and Strategic Initiatives Allison Gilmore at agilmore@nvtc.org.
