About the Presentation

For some time now enterprises such as Netflix and Walmart have been successfully harnessing big data to gain insights into their customer and business landscape as well as improve customer experience. And although experts agree that big data should be the next strategic business initiative in the enterprise, these mostly unchartered waters remain bewildering to business decision makers.

Join us for this webinar where Robin Schumacher, an industry expert and author, will cut through the hype and share five clear, actionable goals that will enable you to establish your big data initiative. Robin will share the most critical questions you need to ask when you plan and implement your big data solution. You will also gain insights into companies that are successfully leveraging this technology to get ahead of the competition.

Whether you are in the planning stages, or you have been already experimenting with NoSQL solutions, this information will help ensure the long term success of your big data initiative so you can take control of your ever growing data and harness it to drive bottom-line business results.
