Moving Beyond Business Intelligence – Incorporating Big Data & Analytics into Your BI & Data Strategy

Michael Fahey, Chief Strategy Officer, Clarity Solution Group

The traditional BI strategy has focused on collecting, managing, and reporting on the data we understand. With the advent of Big Data, organizations have access to new tools, techniques, and infrastructure that allow the analysis of data from sources previously considered "inaccessible" or "unusable" to gain new insight and new understanding.

As a result, Big Data changes the way organizations think about data. And, organizations will need to consider how they will incorporate Big Data into their BI strategy. This session focuses on the emerging best practices successful organizations have followed to incorporate Big Data into their BI strategy and to leverage this new way of thinking about data.

In this session attendees will learn how to:

  • What is Big Data and why it is different
  • How Big Data changes the approach to analytics
  • How Big Data can affect your BI strategy
  • Best practices for absorbing Big Data in your BI strategy

  • Where to start with Big Data
  • How to determine the level of Big Data that is appropriate for your organization’s specific needs
