The hype cycle around big data is unrelenting. But, before you become fatigued, overwhelmed, or just immune to the chatter about how big data will revolutionize federal agency operations, let’s take a minute to breakdown the hype and understand why big data is not just a trend, but a fundamental transformation of our systems and processes.
In this video, Scott Pearson, Director of Big Data Solutions at Brocade talks through the importance of big data – from its definition to how to deploy a solution that will meet your agency’s requirements. In his opinion big data solutions require an understanding of three key things:
1. Who owns the project?
2. What type of data is being managed?
3. Are the network and the data center configured to handle the project?
