About the Webinar

We are in the middle of a data flood and we need to figure out how to tame it without drowning. Most of what has been written about Big Data is focused on selling hardware and services. But what about a Big Data Strategy that guides hardware and software decisions? While virtually every major organization is faced with the challenge of figuring out the approach for and the requirements of this new development, jumping into the fray hastily and unprepared will only reproduce the same dismal IT project results as previously experienced. Join Dr. Peter Aiken as he will debunk a number of misconceptions about Big Data as your un-typical IT project. He will provide guidance on how to establish realistic Big Data management plans and expectations, and help demonstrate the value of such actions to both internal and external decision makers without getting lost in the hype.


  • The means by which Big Data techniques can complement existing data management practices
  • The prototyping nature of practicing Big Data techniques
  • The distinct ways in which utilizing Big Data can generate business value
  • Bigger Data isn’t always Better Data
