Big Data | Big Oceans | Big Agriculture | Big Ideas

Atlantic Canada is already a global centre of excellence when it comes to Big Data. In the last five years, the Big Data Congress (BDC) has grown to become one of North America’s premiere business-focused conferences around Big Data attracting participants from around the world, including India, Britain, Europe and China. Global leaders in Big Data from IBM, Cisco, Hitachi and Google have a significant presence in Atlantic Canada for their Big Data programmes.

This business conference on Big Data is aimed at helping business leaders understand and find innovative ways to use Big Data in agriculture, fisheries, energy and beyond. Our goal is to help our partners create value and deal flow. From equipment manufacturers to IoT device makers, software companies, cloud services and more…this is your opportunity to connect with fellow senior business and government leaders at the world’s only business conference for Big Data in agriculture and oceans!

The BDC2017 is organized by non-profit organisation Big Data Alliance of Nova Scotia. This is an exciting year for the Big Data Congress as we explore ideas, case studies and innovative ways industry and government can use Big Data and advanced analytics in the agricultural and oceans sector. Our goal is to bring together industry, government and academia and we’ll be looking at issues like precision agriculture, digital oilfields, sustainable fisheries, food security and more.
