seoClarity Announces Seasoned CEO and Native Austinite Brett Hurt as Keynote Speaker for Second Annual User Conference, Clarity '14

Clarity '14 offers attendees unique environment for learning the latest in leading edge technology, as well as opportunity to network with top, enterprise-level SEO leaders

CHICAGO, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- seoClarity, the disruptive SEO innovators, today announced its upcoming Clarity '14 conference will feature Brett Hurt, Founder, and until November, 2012, CEO and President, of Bazaarvoice. A seasoned CEO and Austin, Texas-native, Hurt has been pioneering e-commerce innovations since 1998 and online communities since 1982. With the theme of this year's conference being "Search Experience Optimization," with a focus on how content and mobile are molding the future of SEO, Brett will be sharing a wealth of experience about user generated content as a content marketing strategy, plus how content and mobile are shaping the future of ecommerce and marketing.

seoClarity's second annual global user conference will take place September 24-25, 2014 at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Austin, Texas. With an intimate feel, over 1,000+ minutes of thought leadership sessions, hands-on workshops, and ample opportunities to ask more than a dozen practitioners optimization questions, Clarity '14 offers a unique environment for networking and learning the latest in leading-edge technology in the search world.

Brett founded Bazaarvoice and served as CEO and President for 7.5 years, leading the company from bootstrapped concept to almost 2,000 clients worldwide and through its successful IPO. He subsequently guided the company through a successful follow-on offering and two acquisitions, PowerReviews and Longboard Media. Brett continues to actively support Bazaarvoice as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors. Prior to Bazaarvoice, Brett founded Coremetrics and helped grow the company into a global, leading marketing analytics solution for the eCommerce industry before its acquisition by IBM.

Additionally, Brett has more than 15 years of Internet programming experience and has developed multiple software applications, including Internet marketing analysis solutions, eCommerce platforms, Web-based classroom management applications, virtual communities, multiplayer online games and Bulletin Board System (BBS) software.

An "incredibly proud native Austinite," Brett is an enthusiastic supporter of both Austin's local businesses and entrepreneurs. He was named Entrepreneur of the Year for Austin in 2009 and is a member of the Austin chapter of the international Young Presidents' Organization (YPO).

Clarity '14 organizer Mitul Gandhi, Co-Founder and Chief Architect, seoClarity, said featuring Brett as keynote speaker for Clarity '14 makes perfect sense because "the conference is the only Austin-based event of its kind where users, prospects and industry friends can network and share in such an intimate environment."

"Brett's ability to turn his shared visions and passions into tangible products and services that help transform businesses to an entirely different level of performance is very unique," Gandhi said. "We welcome Brett to Clarity '14 and look forward to his sharing his insight and expertise with our global audience."

The Clarity '14 Conference is a one-of-a-kind global event that initially stemmed from the wildly successful regional events that seoClarity hosted for numerous years where clients had the opportunity to meet their peers, share and network. Last year, Clarity '13 was a highly successful conference that attracted more than 100 clients, prospects and thought leaders, providing the same intimate, human-centric atmosphere on a global scale across the 1,000+ enterprise and agency SEOs that use seoClarity on a daily basis.

During this year's two-day conference, attendees can participate in unique, informative learning tracks, workshops and panel discussions designed to provide direct insight into the most up-to-date strategies and technological advancements in search marketing. Conference tracks will cover a wide variety of topics, from technical SEO and content marketing fundamentals to more advanced tracks that look to future trends. In addition, there will be specialized training where attendees can earn a Clarity "Masters" certification.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
