FutureM, the annual event showcasing the future of marketing, today announced that Amit Phansalkar, Chief Data Officer of MassMutual, will host the data track at this year’s event.

The FutureM 2014 data track will feature a number of experts in the big data marketing ecosystem, including senior director of Analytics at Wayfair, David Drollette, who will discuss how data can be used to benefit the customer.
