I am at Fujitsu Technology Forum at the Santa Clara Convention center.
One presentation that you can look at the PDF of is McKinsey's Michael Chui discussing Big Data as a new Frontier.
The bottom line value of interest I saw in the PDF is as follows.
1. Creating transparency
2. Enabling experimentation to discover needs, expose variability, and improve performance
3. Segmenting populations to customize actions
4. Replacing/supporting human decision making with automated algorithms
5. Innovating new business models, products and services
