Big Data changes the paradigm of corporate decision making like no other technology before, aiming at the ultimate goal of really understanding customers and making faster, better and more sustainable decisions – that’s the name of the game.

Interacting with the world's largest data sets — structured and unstructured — at the speed of thought, and asking bigger questions in the pursuit of discovering assets never known before, is a challenge for every enterprise addressing international markets.

Phil Carter, Associate Vice President for the European Software Group of IDC, says: “New decision making, based on the fast integration of Big Data technologies, is a necessity for every company aiming at growth as a condition for survival in future.”

IDC research shows that many organizations do not yet have the competency or maturity to address the range of technology, staffing and process requirements needed to capitalize on Big Data assets and to deploy analytics pervasively to optimize operational, tactical, and strategic decisions.

But where to start? The obstacles to the integration of the right Big Data strategy may be bigger than ever:
  • How about Trust and Data Security Issues?
  • Intuition vs. Algorithm: How vulnerable is the New Decision Making when it’s largely based on algorithms?
  • Unlocking value and returns: How can Big Data really help organizations to meet reality better and faster than before?
  • Technology alternatives: Can real-time computing solutions such as Hadoop or SAP Hana live up to their promise and deliver the deep insights required to create competitive advantages?
  • Is Cloud Computing a prerequisite for integrating and scaling Big Data projects?
  • How to gain access to the globally based practices and relevant vertical or domain expertise from vendors to help leapfrog your competitors?
