Big Data is a big deal in business today. But if you were to ask a hundred people what Big Data is – and more importantly, to state its business value – you’d probably get a hundred different answers.

 

Big Data is too important, too interesting and too costly to be so elusive. This unique, unbiased and vendor-neutral seminar remedies that. It walks participants through the most powerful concepts of Big Data and defines its business value, while simplifying and explaining the technology behind it. The purpose is to distinguish rhetoric from reality, cut through the market buzz surrounding Big Data and boil it down to its essential concepts and applications.

 

Big Data implementations cost big money to develop. It is purported to have big business value. But the message is muddled and often incomplete. Is Big Data just another fad, or is there sound business value behind it? What is the difference between Big Data and “regular data”, and why should you care? What are the critical skills necessary to bring such initiatives to reality? This seminar answers these fundamental questions, as well as illuminates Big Data’s strategic potential.

 

Be among the first to benefit from the value-targeted content conveyed by a foremost expert and highly seasoned strategic consultant.  Proceed now to the seminar details, then reserve your space today through the secure online registration form or by phone.

This course presents strategic, cultural, process, resource and team issues that most organizations are ill-equipped to address when attempting to establish a thriving and sustainable analytic practice.  There is no other course available that addresses critical practice issues at the organizational level with full vendor neutrality and insistence upon pragmatic, goal-driven analytics.

 

The instructors of this course are highly seasoned consultants that directly encounter common challenges that prevent the vast majority of larger organizations from assembling a fully structured, viable team -- and achieving an analytic function that is purposeful, measurable, actionable, explainable, residual… and adopted by leadership.

 

Anyone who contributes to -- or benefits from -- the analytic function should attend this highly engaging event.  Those who attend this course will develop rare soft skills andleadership traits required to significantly enhance their professional profile and really stand out from the crowded field of tactical data scientists.  Participants will receive a formal certificate of accreditation from INFORMS.
