How Ready are you for Big Data?

Sponsored by Talend!

For many organizations, the promise of Big Data has not been fulfilled.  Many feel inundated by tools and technologies but are still unsure how to turn big data into real value.  

Most organizations cannot pinpoint where they are on their Big Data journey or where to turn next for the most valuable insights and opportunities. Yet there are many organizations that are finding tremendous ROI already. What can we learn from them?

This session will give you a sense for how mature your organization is, in terms of its ability to take advantage of Big Data.  You'll also leave with an understanding of which next steps to take in order to move further along the maturity spectrum.  

In the session we will:

-  Explain the 5-step Big Data Maturity Model 

-  Walk through the Practical Steps to develop, and then mature your Big Data capability

-  Describe the tools available to help assess / benchmark your current maturity

Imran Siddiqi is Senior Principal for Big Data and Analytics at SAP.  In his role, he is focused on "value engineering" for SAP's clients.

    Worked on two large scale deployments, and exactly as the topic says, most people are unsure on where they are on the Big Data journey. So, looking forward to the Big Data maturity model.
