Join Will Cairns, senior data scientist at HP, over lunch as he describes how the HP Vertica Analytics Platform enables you to manage and analyze massive amounts of data to find critical answers for your sports-related initiatives. By joining this session, you will also get a clearer understanding of the role of relational database management systems in analytics and research as well as the impact of sensor technologies on the growing volume of data. An avid golfer and fantasy golf enthusiast, Will Cairns will provide specific examples on PGA Tour research and admit, albeit begrudgingly, how data science ultimately beats his intuition and overall golf knowledge.
