Getting Started With Big Data and Analytics
Big data and analytics have received significant attention in the media recently, and TDWI has seen growing adoption of these technologies by organizations looking to become more competitive. Organizations are using big data with analytics to extend current initiatives in new and innovative ways.
However, the reality is that most enterprises do not know how to get started with big data analytics. “How” and “what” questions are common among these organizations. For example, they want to know how to put together a big data strategy. What are the most common places companies start in their big data journey? What technologies do early adopters of the technology use? How do companies put the right skill set in place for big data analytics?
In this thought-provoking roundtable discussion, Fern Halper, TDWI Research director for advanced analytics; Colin White, president of BI research company DBA Inc.; and Tina Groves, IBM product manager for BI and big data, explore these critical questions.
