The world’s first conference to focus on how Big Data is improving the productivity of business and government.


Smart Cities, Health, Productivity, Everything.


Join us at the Big Data for Productivity Congress on October 19 to 21, 2015 to discover how Big Data is contributing to business productivity and even to our day-to-day lives.


The 2015 Congress, a timely partnership between the Big Data Congress III and the 17th World Productivity Congress, aims to examine the convergence of Big Data and strategies for improving productivity.


Today, Atlantic Canada with its rapidly growing knowledge industries and world leading universities and colleges is becoming a global centre of excellence in data sciences. Halifax will host this international conference bringing business, government and academia together to explore, debate and understand the impacts of big data on productivity in our world. This is primarily a business conference, not simply a technology conference (view the Business Side of Big Data). The congress will focus on the evolution of productivity and analytics as they relate to the Internet of Everything, Smart Cities and Industrial Efficiency. The congress will feature a global trade track and internationally recognized speakers.


This may be the most powerful event you attend in 2015.
