Oh, and we also uploaded the in-depth – and mightily humorous (in parts) – slide deck to Slideshare; allowing you to move through the presentation at your own pace.




The growth – and growing importance – of Big Data analytics

Not only are people talking more about Big Data, there’s simply a lot more of it. IBM estimates that 90 percent of the data in the world today was created in the last two years. Now that’s serious growth! But, more critically, modern analytics technologies are empowering organizations to capture, collate and explore data of greater volume, variety and velocity, to effectively support business outcomes.

As Colin White, President and Founder of BI Research, said in a recent interview in relation to Big Data, “It’s time to move from Big Data management to Big Data analytics – it’s what you do with the data that matters.”

And if you needed any evidence that Big Data projects support tangible business improvements, 84 percent of organizations actively leveraging Big Data claim that they can now make better decisions as a direct result of that investment (Avanade).

“Now, we believe that there is very real value that can be achieved by capturing, analyzing and applying growing volumes of actionable data to clearly defined business objectives. But, carefully outlining realistic benefits, and the necessary steps required to achieve the specific benefits sort in each use case, is essential. That’s what this best practice Webinar series is all about – avoiding Big Data hysteria and understanding its true usefulness.”
- Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie
