I am speaking at the SV Forum Business Intelligence SIG on Decisions First: How to stop wasting money on Big Data – April 15 at 6:30pm at SAP’s Palo Alto location.
Big Data is hot. Organizations are dealing with greater volumes of data, more variety of data and data that arrives with increasing velocity. These “Big Data” challenges are leading to new technologies and new investments in those technologies. For too many organizations, however, investments in Big Data have become semi-detached from their business goals and operations. Money is being spent, and wasted, on Big Data for projects that are pure research with no business goal.
In this session James Taylor, CEO and Principal Consultant at Decision Management Solutions and author of several books on Decision Management, will outline an approach that focuses Big Data investments on creating business value.
