Uncover hidden insights, maximize possibilities

Many organizations are struggling to understand just what big data is and how to best harness it. Data is exploding at an exponential rate and data sources are increasingly complex and varied, including a massive influx of data generated by mobile devices, social media, click streams, machines, applications and more. Leading companies are endeavoring to manage and leverage both structured and unstructured data, via advanced analytics, to gain new insights, and find anomalies, correlations and answers to a wide array of questions that drive front-line decision making and transform the business. To do this effectively, companies need to deploy new technologies that uniquely suit their business use cases. World Wide Technology (WWT) developed its Big Data Workshop to facilitate this process by helping customers better understand how their organizations can utilize emerging technology to benefit from, rather than be overwhelmed by, big data.

During a Big Data Workshop, WWT experts will share insights and use cases from organizations that have tackled big data challenges successfully. We will define and explore the different types of data now classified as big data. We will also examine the benefits of and differences between available big data tools, such as Hadoop, along with the pros and cons of multiple big data architectures. Each Big Data Workshop is customized based on your organization’s current level of knowledge of big data and addresses your strategic and technical goals aligned around big data. Whether you are new to the subject, or have a good understanding of available technology and are ready to take the next step, this workshop can help your organization better understand, manage and leverage big data effectively.

Objectives

The WWT Big Data Workshop is a two- to four-hour technical and strategic whiteboard session designed to increase your understanding of Big Data and help you outline your strategy for using Big Data analytics solutions to add value.
