Webinar Abstract

Big data is changing everything in IT, including data management.

In fact, data management is like two decks of playing cards, one deck representing today’s traditional techniques, tools, and teams, while the other deck represents new and upcoming ones. Over the next several years, the two decks will be folded together and shuffled, as user organizations consolidate and expand their efforts in both traditional data management and the management of newer data types from Web, social, multi-structured, machine, and streaming sources.

The result is big data management, the next generation of data management best practices and technologies, driven by new business and technical requirements for big data and related fields in analytics, real time, and diverse data types. Yet, the next generation also seeks to preserve (when possible) traditional best practices and techniques for data integration, quality, modeling, master data, metadata, governance, stewardship, and system high performance.

The content of this Webinar is based on the research findings of a new Best Practices Report by TDWI’s Philip Russom called Managing Big Data. That report was sponsored by vendor firms Cloudera, Dell Software, Oracle, Pentaho, SAP, and SAS

You will learn:

  • An overview of managing data with diverse big data  
  • A review of traditional data management standards and how these do (and sometimes don’t) apply to new big data
  • Market trends and statistics about how your peers in other organizations are merging new big data requirements into old data management practices
  • Recommendations for successfully consolidating and expanding all of your efforts in data management, whether for traditional enterprise data or new big data
