Big Data in the Cloud: Strategies for Analytics Success

Big data is becoming the norm for many organizations, which is a good thing because it can provide a great deal of insight. Big data includes large volumes of disparate data types: structured data as well as “newer” data such as text, images, geospatial and streaming data. Analyzing newer kinds of data is becoming mainstream.

In this webinar, you will learn three ways BI and analytics are typically embedded into operational applications, new embedded use cases, and what to consider in your embedded analytics evaluation.

TDWI Members Only

Most business intelligence (BI) systems were initially designed to support managed forms of reporting and simple analytics. Reports in these BI systems needed to be auditable, governable, tested, required high data quality, and so on. Now, however, organizations want to do more with their BI systems than reporting.

Considerations for Cloud Data Quality Tool Solutions

Cloud software offerings have exploded in the data management and governance scene in a big way. Longstanding leaders in the data quality tool market are releasing cloud versions of their DQ platforms while upstart cloud-only competitors attempt to gain market share by selling more lightweight toolsets, often directly to business divisions rather than IT. Interesting hybrid architectures are also being tested, sometimes with multiple vendors and sometimes with multiple types of implementations of the same vendors’ tools.
