In this presentation, Joe starts by asking a key question: why are we doing this? Why analyze and share all these massive amounts of data? Basically, it comes down to the belief that in any organization, in any situation, if we can get the data and make it correct and timely, insights from it will become instantly actionable for companies to function more nimbly and successfully. Enabling the use of data can be a world-changing, world-improving activity and this session presents the steps necessary to get you there. Joe explains the concept of the "data lake" and also emphasizes the role of a strong data governance strategy that incorporates seven components needed for a successful program.
Attendees at this session will get answers to the questions:
- In the transition to Big Data, what is the toughest question that organizations must ask themselves?
- What are the biggest challenges of big data and why is it so hard?
- In the big data world, is there a role for the traditional warehouse?
- How do we move information out of the data lake for business benefit?
- What are the core technologies - and those on the horizon - that we must know about consider?
- Why are we doing this? Why even try and analyze massive amounts of data, and where will it get us an organization?
