Another Look at Tuning Big Data Queries 02/16/2015

Most large organizations have implemented one or more big data applications. As more data accumulates internal users and analysts execute more reports and forecasts, which leads to additional queries and analysis, and more reporting.

How to avoid this?

Managing the Big Data Technical Staff 01/20/2015

Big data is everywhere, and most large IT enterprises have installed one or more big data applications. These applications provide fast access to large stores of data, usually customer or sales data.

Big Data Holiday Planning! 12/15/2014

Your big data repository won't simply add another twelve months of data over the next year. More data is coming, more categories of data will be created, and your analytical environment must expand to fit future needs. But size alone won't be your only problem.

These missing details can make or break your company in the future.

Preparing Your Enterprise for Big Data 10/16/2014

It’s difficult to simply 'drop' big data applications into an existing IT infrastructure and expect to run smoothly.

The major factors that determine whether enhancements will be needed to existing applications include large data storage needs, larger data transmission capacity, and the demands these will place on existing hardware and software.

Integrating Big Data into the Enterprise Data Warehouse 09/15/2014

Big Data implementations are more than just lots of data. Of equal importance is the analytics software used to query the data.

It is therefore only natural that your big data application must be integrated with the existing warehouse.

Big Data Technologists Transition to Customer-Facing Roles 08/18/2014

In other words, give them customer-facing roles.
