Big Data- A Strategic Viewpoint

This is a two day seminar on Big Data and how to achieve real business value. The first day is on Big Data and the second day is on unstructured data. All data in Big Data is unstructured so it is necessary to have a lengthy discussion on the issues related to unstructured data.Today there is a high failure rate associated with Big Data because corporations jump into Big Data without asking these two basic questions - how do I achieve business value from Big Data and once I have captured Big Data how do I do business intelligence and analytical processing from the data I have captured. The seminar is structured so that there is ample time to ask questions and interact with the instructor. The course is peppered with real life examples and case studies. This is a very practical seminar and is vendor neutral.
