Big Data Readiness Framework Part I: Are You Ready for Big Data?
Earlier this year, EMC launched our new Federation Business Data Lake (FBDL) solution, to help customers leverage DATA to generate INSIGHT, and convert it to business VALUE.
The idea of leveraging big data insights to drive business value resonates with just about everyone we talk to these days – but – we’re finding that most organizations are still struggling with this. In fact, when it comes to big data and predictive analytics, we find customers generally fall into one of three stages: undecided, motivated or ready. Let’s take a more in depth look at this framework and what it means.
What is Your Level of Readiness?
- UNDECIDED – This means you aren’t sure where, or how, to get started – you don’t have a particular use case in mind. So you might need help in identifying and prioritizing that first high-value business use case for big data analytics. More >>
- MOTIVATED – Here you’ve already identified a target use case. Now you need help in proving the potential value of the target use case on an analytics environment prior to implementing anything into production. More >>
- READY – If you’re fully ready to make good on the promise of turning data into insights to drive value, then you’re going to need a data lake platform to store and reason over data – to find correlations among different data sources that you’ve never examined together. Here you’ll want help with both the initial deployment of a data lake solution, as well as help to fully operationalize your environment, your processes and your people. More >>
