Title: Big Data Maturity Model
When: Sep 17 2013 7:30 am PST /4.30 pm CET
Let’s face it, the promise of Big Data has not yet lived up to the expectations most of us have had of it. For some, this topic is seen as a series of challenges or problems to be overcome, rather than a set of opportunities to take advantage of. A lot of that is because most BI practitioners have been inundated with tools and technologies. While understanding the technology aspects of big data is important, most organizations cannot pinpoint where they are on their Big Data journey, or where they can go next for the most value. Yet there are many organizations that are finding tremendous ROI already. What can we learn from them? This session will teach a Maturity Model and Architecture framework for pinpointing where you currently are, and how you can progress to get Big Value from Big Data.
