Everyone is talking about Big Data and projects are starting, but most organizations are still trying to understand what it means to them.
Avalon Consulting, LLC, has been developing Big Data plans and projects for clients in a wide array of industries ranging from insurance to media to non-profits. The case studies they will share during our meetup are based on implementations that use MapReduce for data processing, analytics, search and data visualization. Based on these projects and others they have developed a framework for helping organizations understand their data in order to develop a roadmap for launching Big Data projects that are aligned with their strategic goals.
Joe Hilger and Niels Nielsen, Practice Directors at Avalon Consulting, LLC, will present this Big Data framework along with case studies stemming from Avalon’s hands-on experience.
Their presentation will feature...
· A brief overview of the most powerful Big Data tools and technologies
· A vision for the future of Big Data and unstructured information
· Definition of types of Big Data projects
· Examples of Big Data implementations used to solve common business problems
We look forward to a lively dialog about how Big Data can be used most effectively to help you reach your organizational goals.
