||Driving Action with Big Data Analytics
Focus today is shifting from simply capturing big data and discovering new insights with it to operationalizing those insights. The industrial revolution took manufacturing processes from an artisanal practice to a modern technological marvel that is able to manufacture quality items on a massive scale. The same type of revolution must happen with analytics and big data. Based on my popular book, The Analytics Revolution, this talk will address technological, organizational, and cultural points that must be considered to success in making big data actionable and operational.
