Find out what exactly what big data is, what's in it for you, and how to succeed with it.
In the words of Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, when it comes to data...
There is every indication that we’ve only just begun; that the mountains of data already generated by IT system logs, forms, multimedia files, email, social media feeds, Web analytics, metadata, mobile devices, and countless other applications are but the proverbial tip of the iceberg.
This overview is designed to answer the questions of:
- What defines big data?
- What’s in it for business?
- What important steps can I take to succeed with big data?
The world is moving slowly along this big data paradigm and we're waking up to the power of what we've got in our databases. Up to now, we didn't have the ability to mine that properly. Now with Tableau, we’re much more focused on the data.
