The Big Data Shift• More marketing dollars moved to digital.• Data growing exponentially with more focus on Big Data• Social and Mobile becoming increasingly important and interconnected (and measureable).• Companies in all sectors have at least 100 terabytes of stored data in the United States; many have more than 1 petabyte and it continues to grow as more people are online in social and mobile.• Better ability to glean customer insights as a result of improvements in semantic technologies.• Desire to expose data externally (gov.org) and share it. 4
    • 5. Org challenges• Departmental: • Analytic applications are often departmental by nature • Departments deploy their own platforms for big data and analytics • Many organizations today haven’t figured out how to leverage Big Data. • Two thirds of executives believe that there is not enough of a “big data culture” in their organization - this is particularly notable across the manufacturing sector• Technology: • Not all BI/DW technology stacks are designed for advanced analytics • Lack of single digital platform • Difficulty measuring effectiveness – unable to link data to individuals • Complicated buying process/user experience • Not adequately using data they already have • Too much unstructured data to support decision-making• Skills: • Talent shortage • Lack of expertise and experience • Having a just-in-time agile mindset • Ask the right questions 5

    • 16. CardinalityDistinct Values per Variable Traditional Data Systems relied on the ability to• With lots of distinct values: aggregate most dimensions into small set of – OLAP becomes difficult distinct values to work well. When your dimensions have lots of distinct – Visualization is nearly impossible values (high cardinality), you’re dealing with – In-Memory Systems struggle Big-Data. 16
    • 17. Complex (and Dynamic) RelationshipsCombining data from different tables:• Joins put lots of stress on the design – Join strategies are complex and hugely impactful – Exposing the data model becomes difficult – Optimizing specific paths limits query flexibilityTraditional Data Systems relied on a small number of static paths to exposereporting data at the aggregate level.When you have to join lots of tables and have unknown or dynamic needs tocombine data (all Analysis applications), then you are dealing with a big-dataproblem. 17
    • 18. Why Digital is Usually Big DataDigital Measurement is a paradigm case of big-data:• Lot’s of data – Millions (hundreds of?) events per day – Lots of data per event• Lot’s of key High Cardinality variables – Page Name, Product Sets, Referrers, Campaigns, Keywords – and Customers• Lot’s of complex relationships and joins: – Page -> Visit -> Campaign_Touch -> Visitor -> Channel• Traditional variables don’t aggregate meaningfully: – Views, Page Time, Visits, etc. 18
    • 19. It’s About Getting Your Hands on the DataIn the digital world, there’s little correlation betweensize of enterprise and size of data.
