Recent research is showing an increasing acceleration of deployment of Big Data solutions. As these solutions move into production, leading organizations are thinking creatively and adapting policies and practices to manage an integrated environment.

It’s become clear that just as Big Data is not a linear advance on conventional “little” data, so the new strategies and practices are not a simple extension of current approaches into new territory. Not everything being done now will scale!

This session will share “Best Practice” strategies we have seen as Data Management groups recognize that the same regulatory constraints and pressures for agile response to new business opportunities apply to “Big” and “little” data.

We will cover:

  • The different use cases for conventional and Big Data
  • What is the same about Big Data in production and what’s different
  • The implications for Data Management strategy and practice
  • The implications for Data Governance strategies and practice
  • Example approaches that we have seen in recent customer engagements
  • A view into the future, looking at how change will continue to reshape Data Management
