Additionally, VoltDB President and CEO Bruce Reading, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Scott Jarr, VP of Engineering John Piekos, and VP of Market Technology and Strategy, Mark Hydar will each share market insight on where opportunities exist today to solve velocity challenges and deliver business value through big data.

East Coast event: The first event will be on Wednesday, January 23rd, at 6 p.m., at hack/reduce, a non-profit business incubator located at 275 Third Street in Cambridge, Mass.
