Big data analytics requires the ability to collect, manage, and analyze potentially huge volumes of disparate data at the right speed, within the right time frame, while providing the right-time analysis and activity to the end consumer. Big data analytics has the potential to provide great value for companies by increasing productivity and performance. It is an exciting and challenging time for organizations as they consider big data opportunities.
Recently, TDWI launched its Big Data Maturity Model Guide and Assessment, which provides a benchmarking tool for organizations to assess their big data maturity. As part of the research for the model, we spoke to many organizations at various stages of their big data journey to understand best practices for big data and big data analytics.
