  • Benefits: Links the pattern chosen to a line item on the organization’s income statement.
  • Costs: Based on the big data maturity of the organization, and combines investments and ongoing costs regarding people, processes, technology, and data.
  • Intangibles: Many costs and benefits of a big data project are intangible, or difficult to quantify. This area allows for the organization to record any intangibles for consideration when pursuing the project.
