Grand Hyatt, San Francisco

Big data analytics will continue to ignite explosive growth for those able to leverage it in 2014.

But while the data-science field continues to evolve at warp speed, companies are moving to a more practical stage this year: They’re seeking real results from their investments in analytics tools. They’re looking to boost revenue or curtail costs — or best of all, both.

VentureBeat hosted our inaugural DataBeat event in 2013, and it was a smash success, bringing together some of the top data scientists, analysts, investors, and entrepreneurs in the field of big data.

This year’s DataBeat will be laser focused on helping companies increase profitability through smart analytics and big data tools. We’re gathering the brightest minds to filter through the noise and give new insights on the people, technologies, and strategies that will accelerate growth.

Under the Radar: Work Smarter, Not Harder.
 November 9-10, 2011 – Your discount code!

Under the Radar: Work Smarter, Not Harder.
  November 9-10, 2011.

Under the Radar is returning for their 18th conference in Mountain View, CA.  As Silicon Valley’s most effective innovation showcase and business development conference, Under the Radar continues to bring leading decision makers together with pre-vetted startups that are disrupting the way traditional business is run.

Whether a business is online or offline it needs to be well-designed, collaborative, lean, metrics-driven, viral, social and profitable – but as a business owner, filtering through the thousands of new “web solutions” can be overwhelming.  On the flip-side, industry leaders with large audiences need to stay relevant, keep customers engaged and grow their revenues.  The SMB market is infamous for being difficult to reach and there is a deluge of Saas startups fighting for their attention.

This Under the Radar will bring together innovative startups with industry leaders in hopes to create distribution partnerships, give major brands and corporations offerings their customers are asking for, and ease decision making for the business owner.

Under the Radar has been recognized as the most important showcase of innovation and deal-making forum in Silicon Valley. Under the Radar is NOT a funding event, however, in the past three years alone, 62% of their presenters have gone on to raise major funding and/or been acquired by companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Cisco, BT, Microsoft, Twitter, Fox Interactive, and others. It’s inevitable with so many dealmakers in one room.

Categories highlighted include:

People 2.0 | Cash Mngt | Analytics | Engagement | e-Commerce | Relationship Mngt | Workflow | Marketing

Confirmed Companies:
Seamless Receipts
The Resumator
Wave Accounting
Sprout Social
