"Big Data" has become one of the top buzzwords in the IT industry over the past few years. And like many buzzwords, the term is frequently misused, misunderstood and is loaded with over-inflated expectations.
In this session we will seek to define the term more precisely and distinguish hype from reality. We will discuss the power of insight, and how Big Data solutions can provide greater visibility into the factors impacting the performance and health of your business. We will also discuss some of the challenges you may encounter implementing Big Data solutions, and some recommended best practices for overcoming those challenges.
