FEATURE PRESENTATION by Daugherty Business Solutions.

So - you're ready to start your journey to deliver value to the business using your Big Data and Hadoop-based solutions.  Or maybe - you've started already, but haven't been able to provide the needed insights or ROI rapidly enough for the business.  Well - you're like a lot of companies!  Almost all companies will encounter big challenges as they bring in any new disruptive technology, and it's no different for Big Data technologies.

We will discuss the typical challenges that many companies face, and provide some tips and recommendations on how to overcome them.   We will share how by developing a strategic approach, combined with a quick-start process, we can navigate successfully along our Big Data / Hadoop Journey.  Daugherty’s quick-start approach enables incremental value delivery while building robust processes and analytical capabilities for our clients.
