Implementing a Big Data program can be a long and arduous journey. Each organization has its own unique business drivers and technical considerations that drive their big data adoption roadmaps. Whatever be your organization's specific big data driver - be it managing a rapid surge of data, implementing a new set of analytic capabilities, incorporating unstructured data as part of your enterprise data platform or accessing real time information for actionable intelligence - the approach and roadmap that you put in place to reach that end goal becomes all the more critical in a space where early success stories are relatively rare, skill sets are hard to find and technologies are still evolving.
In this session we will chronicle the journeys of four different organizations that were early adopters of big data. Each of them charted a different path to achieve their big data goals. We will look at what were the key drivers behind their respective approaches, what worked and what did not work for them.
