BIG DATA SUMMIT: Effective Data Management and Analytics to Drive Successful Projects
From its position on the horizons of enterprise understanding a couple of years ago, Big Data is now very much central to many firms today. Ninety per cent of the world's data has been created within the last two years and its volumes are growing with our every click and keystroke. Big data is massive and messy, and it's coming at us fast. However, if captured it can be catalogued and analysed to power incredibly advanced decision making. As we move beyond Big Data hype we start to see more and more practical examples of how next-generation Big Data technologies can help every business move towards more data-driven and evidence based business models.
But it isn't a simple path from A to B. Big Dig data also presents a whole new set of challenges for data management teams as setting the optimal data management strategy right is as crucial as selecting the right storage and analysis tools. More often than not, standard data management practices don't apply to the enormous volumes of unstructured data seen today.
Computing's third Big Data Summit will tackle all of these issues, and answer questions like: What are the different flavours of Big Data and how do you bring them together? What tools and skills do you need for Big Data analytics? What is the role of the data warehouse in the Big Data world and how can you integrate it with platforms like Hadoop?
