Level:  Business/Strategic

The golden trifecta of business transformation - people, process, and technology – is critical when it comes to big data. But which is most important? We would argue that the people – i.e., the "who" of big data – are the most important.

In this session, we will address the "who" of big data from two perspectives:

  • The Why perspective looks at your organization and asks: "Why is your business interested in big data and why now?" and "Who will make your big data vision and mission successful?"
  • The How perspective looks at the tactics of building a big data team and asks: “How will you achieve your initiatives?” and “Who will make your projects successful?”
Regardless of where you are in your big data journey, join us and learn about getting the right people on the bus. The success of your big data program may very well depend on it.
