Data – it’s the driver for new innovation. But, how do you know if your company is maximizing the value of its data? It’s definitely no easy task. For most companies it means transformation and thinking differently.

Did you know that the least competitive organizations are:


●Two times more likely to say, “Data is not fresh enough

●Four-and-a-half times more likely to say, “Response times of current technology are too long”

●Three times more likely to say they are “missing opportunities because information is not being presented to them at the right time”


But what better time to begin that transformation and build your Big Data strategy, then the start of the new year.


  • Learn how successful companies are strategically applying data to achieve mission critical challenges in business
  • Understand best practices to maximize return on investment (ROI) for your business
  • See what’s a “real-time enterprise,” and why it’s important
  • Learn the next steps organizations should take in aligning business and IT professionals in meeting the needs of the real-time enterprise

If you’re not looking into how to drive innovation and efficiencies through Big Data and real-time use cases you‘ll get left behind.


When building a house, people use blueprints so why not do the same for building your Big Data Strategy. IDC’s research on Big Data and its Blueprint for Success is an excellent place to start.

Good luck!
