The case for big data is defined by the business’ need to process various forms of high volume data at high velocities. Begin your big data implementation with a baseline Hadoop pilot to gather institutional learning and validate the value and usefulness of big data.
Take a systematic approach to implement your big data Hadoop pilot in your organization:
- Assess your current readiness to engage in big data development.
- Build your project team to implement your Hadoop pilot.
- Build your stack starting with business requirements and mapping them to big data tools and design schemas that provide business value.
- Optimize your stack based on velocity, volume, and schema variation metrics in order to better serve the business needs.
Leverage Hadoop as your pilot project to gain organizational buy-in and build institutional learning.
