Completing the Big Data Picture: Understanding Why and Not Just What

 Download

Webinar Abstract
The deluge of customer, machine and sensor-generated data – log files, click streams, position data, etc. – is at an all time high. While analytic database management systems and massively parallel processing address the sheer volume of Big Data, there are significant challenges in their ability to handle the variety and complexity of information that drives meaningful value.

To understand “why” data is trending favorably or unfavorably, it is necessary to draw contextual insight from unstructured information such as documents, emails, SharePoint, web content, surveys, call logs and more. Enterprise search is typically used to access unstructured content, but has little to offer for doing data analysis.

A new approach, unified information access, produces a single universal interface for discovering, analyzing, and integrating information, regardless of its source or format.

This web seminar takes a look at this new approach, discusses the types of use cases and business users it is suited for, and explains how it can coexist with, and extend, current BigData technologies.

What You Will Learn:

  • Why business users find it difficult to discover, analyze and consume information
  • Approaches for integrated structured and unstructured information and the impact of big data
  • Solutions that combine the best of BI and search
  • Use cases and case studies
