A decade ago, Google's PageRank algorithm transformed the face of the web, moving us from directories to relevance. Today, dozens of tech leaders are finding that Big Data is the key to their success. By processing masses of information on users, prices, traffic patterns, and trends, they're able to get ahead of the competition. How you bend data to your will is the difference between a failed startup and a breakout success.
Strata's case study track highlights the ways that innovators in a wide range of industries are putting data to work and giving their companies a competitive edge. In-depth tutorials will show you how you can put data to work in your organization.
The Strata program and speaker list has filled out nicely over the past few weeks. If you haven't taken the time to peruse the Strata Conference site here, be sure to take a moment to wrap your head around the amazing lineup of speakers we've confirmed, the data-rich and bottom line relevant tutorials and sessions, our Executive Summit, and the extra credit data conversations going on over on O'Reilly Radar. We also have a bunch of killer evening activities in the works to round out your Strata experience.
Sound great? We think so too, and want to make it easier on your pocketbook to attend in February. So here's the deal - since this is new conference and new territory for us, we're offering some incentives if you help us promote the conference in one of these ways:
If you place any Strata banner as a (somewhat) permanent (through end of January) addition to your web site, blog, etc., we'll send you a code for 25% off your Strata registration, PLUS a code for a free ebook download of your choice from oreilly.com.
If you're willing to promote Strata, but are a little hesitant to give fixed space on your site, you can still save! Drop a banner into a blog post and we'll still send you the 25% off code by itself.
You can also score the 25% off savings plus free ebook of your choice if you place a Facebook Like badge - promoting the Strata fan page - on your site or blog. First, make sure you're a Strata fan yourself, then visit the Like Badges page and create one for Strata. Voila! Facebook gives you the embed code to place your Like badge.
Once you've posted the banner or Facebook badge, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you your code(s). Please use the subject line "Strata Banner (or Facebook Badge) is up
If you're an active, enthusiastic, prolific blogger, you can also score a free Full Conference Pass for Strata:
