Big Data is one the latest trends in technology, allowing organizations to use all of the information they collect. In the past “exhaust data” was thrown away due to cost and capacity constraints. Since the cost of storage and retrieval has incredibly decreased, we can now store and use this obscure data to our advantage. Using Hadoop and machine learning, companies find insights in ‘exhaust data’ or large amounts of real-time data to make better business decisions.
Big Data focuses on the 3Vs: volume, variety and velocity. Understanding these concepts help make better decisions on how to design and build your environment and architect solutions that provide the greatest insight. SPR Consulting’s Getting Started with Big Data and Hadoop Workshop is designed to educate your team and dedicate time to generating ideas on how to capitalize on this technology.
Who should attend: Best for a cross-functional team: IT, R&D, Operations/Supply Chain, Marketing, Sales, and Finance.
* Note: the half-day session concludes after the pilot success criteria definition. Full day workshop attendees will receive a lunch break and will spend the afternoon planning and implementing.
