Big Data, Bigger Impact
In most companies, data and analytics have historically been considered a service. However, analysts are now taking a more proactive role in driving businesses, and the more recent introduction of big data has accelerated this trend. This new world comes with a new set of best practices for leveraging big data and driving even bigger results. This session will discuss several of these best practices focused on getting the biggest impact from big data and driving a proactive, data-driven culture. We’ll cover how to integrate big data into your current environment, and discuss approaches that enable you to maintain standards for your centralized big data store while still maintaining flexibility for users. Then we’ll discuss how to use this data to affect your business, including using a high-impact analysis cycle, structuring your analytics team, and creating an analytics culture focused on outcomes rather than insights.
