The University of Dallas Sustainable Business Network has invited thought leaders from a variety of industries to share their insights into what big data means in their industries. These experts will discuss their  experiences and lessons learned for avoiding the pitfalls of big data, including privacy, confidentiality, and transparency challenges.
