A session at 2nd Annual Big Data & Analytics Summit Canada

Thursday 18th February, 2016

2:15pm to 3:00pm (EST)

Actualizing the Value of Big Data in Incremental Steps

A big data initiative can only succeed if it is grounded in a concrete business problem and is executed gradually. Many businesses may not have a big data problem to begin with, and those that do may have an unclear vision as to what they intend to accomplish with their data. Reassess and adapt your big data initiative according to what the data tells you. Take away strategies to:

-Identify the best analytics tools for the task at hand
-Learn how to tackle the complexity of big data when you do not know what questions to ask of it
-Achieve a minimum viable product and prove the value of analytics in the early stages of your project

Leverage agile methodologies to build on every stage of your big data project and enable continuous improvement.
