The difficulty in successfully implementing costly infrastructure and managing large volumes of data in a big data ecosystem has turned high expectations into a low reality. With current offerings, however, you can achieve the benefits of big data without breaking the bank.

Your Challenge

  • Big data tools are not expensive. However, the infrastructure can be. Don’t focus on volume. The benefits of big data do not necessarily come from housing petabytes of data costing big resources. Open source solutions are widely available and ready to be used for the varieties of data at hand.
  • Don’t panic, and make use of the resources you already have. Big hype has put pressure on many organizations to bite off more than they can chew. The skills, tools, and infrastructure for big data can break budgets quickly, but before making rash decisions, start with the resources you already have.
  • Big Data as a Service is making big waves. BDaaS removes many of the hurdles associated with implementing a big data strategy and vastly lowers the barrier of entry.
