August 14, 2014


Why Read This Report

We are beyond the point of struggling over the definition of big data. That doesn't mean all confusion about the term "big data" has been resolved, but rather that companies today struggle over how to actually get started with big data. Unfortunately, there is no single starting point that is best for all companies, just as there is no single most appropriate technology to begin with. Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals and their peers need to find the best possible big data road map for their company. However, there are some important things to consider and lessons to learn that will help AD&D pros avoid ending up with a zoo of individual big data silo solutions over time. This report will help application development professionals plan for big data at a strategic level for long-term transformation.
