Forward-looking CIOs and IT organizations are exploring new strategies for tapping into non-traditional sources of information such as websites, tweets and blogs. While this is a step in right direction, it misses the bigger picture of the big data landscape.

Posted March 26, 2014

Along with big data there come some fundamental challenges. The biggest challenge is that big data is not able to be analyzed using standard analytical software. There is new technology called "textual disambiguation" which allows raw unstructured text to have its context specifically determined.

While minimizing risk is important for financial services organizations, companies need to think beyond fraud detection and understand the wider benefits predictive analytics can provide in terms of better customer experience, driving opportunities and increasing revenue in a highly competitive market.

Such is every organization's nightmare, the price of openness and accessibility.

Business intelligence initiatives, real-time dashboards, and improved reporting are on everyone's radar. Unfortunately, data is more dispersed than ever before, increasingly distributed in the various SaaS applications that a business relies upon. This makes the challenge of implementing these initiatives far more difficult than in the ‘good ole days,' where one could simply connect the tools directly to a database. SaaS data is not open and accessible in a standard way. Instead, it is exposed via APIs (programming interfaces) that require custom coding and expensive integration projects just to connect the pieces together.
