ClearStory Data CEO Sharmila Mulligan to Present at Skoll World Forum

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- ClearStory Data, a company delivering a new big data solution that makes it simple for business users to find, combine and interactively analyze data from corporate and disparate third-party sources, today announced that CEO Sharmila Shahani-Mulligan will be speaking at the Skoll World Forum at the University of Oxford on April 12, 2013.

The application of big data for social change has been a leading topic of discussion at the Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship. This discussion continues at this year's Skoll World Forum, the premier international platform for advancing entrepreneurial solutions to the world's most pressing problems. In her session, Mulligan will discuss the applicability of big data technology innovation in social entrepreneurship with Robert Kirkpatrick, Jake Porway, DJ Patil and Jer Thope.

"Big data's potential to positively impact societal issues is immense but that potential cannot be tapped if analysis continues to be limited to internal, private data silos," said Mulligan. "To drive change, we not only need to empower a new set of non-technical users with the ability to deliver self-service insights but also to enable organizations to converge their private data with the new landscape of web, social and public data sources."

Sharmila Mulligan, CEO, ClearStory Data

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
