About this webinar:
You've heard the hype around big data, and maybe you've put some thought into how it could impact your business. After all, the promise of big data is accessing hidden insights, discovering new approaches, and making better decisions. But how do you begin developing a technology approach that's practical and doesn't require a massive investment of money, time and resources?
The answer is to leverage business intelligence platforms that can handle huge data volumes, provide real-time access and enable data exploration. This webinar serves as a primer on how to practically use big data and BI together. Investments in big data usually allow a group of data scientists to deliver their results to a small community of business end users. To get beyond small communities and have an enterprise impact, you'll need business intelligence – the mechanism to scale your big data initiative across the enterprise.
In this webinar, we:
- Lay out the big data approaches you can take based on your available resources and infrastructure, and the benefits and challenges of each approach
- Explain the benefits of utilizing existing BI platforms for big data analysis and visualization
- Demonstrate big data and BI in action on Teradata and Google BigQuery
This isn't a webinar for IT professionals only. We break the concepts down in a way that makes sense for everyone.
