|About this title|
|The Big Data tsunami is already hitting organizations—a set of disruptive technologies to drive game changers. Business leaders across the globe are seeking answers to the following questions:|
Unlike many other Big Data Analytics blogs and books that cover the basics and technological underpinnings, this book brings a practitioner's view to Big Data Analytics. The author has drawn the material from a large number of workshops and interviews with business and IT leaders.
- What is Big Data and what are others doing with it?
- How do we build a strategic plan for Big Data Analytics?
- How does Big Data change our analytics architecture?
The book examines the drivers behind Big Data, postulates a set of use cases, identifies a set of solution components enabled by Big Data, synthesizes a solution, and recommends implementation approaches. In doing so, it respects organizations' current large investments in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence and demonstrates both evolutionary and revolutionary ways of moving forward to the brave new world of Big Data.
