Big Data Boot Camp Program

We understand why an increasing amount of organizations are starting to turn their attention towards an emerging technology trend practice called Big Data, enabling them to streamline enterprise operations and reduce costs, drive performance and maximize value. We would therefore like to invite you to come and participate in our Big Data Boot Camp Program.

The Big Data Boot Camp Program is an intensive workshop that is tailored to take advantage of the many potential benefits around this new and emerging technology trend. The current challenges with Big Data include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating, information privacy and data source. Big Data was originally associated with three key concepts: volume, variety, and velocity. Other concepts later attributed with Big Data are veracity (i.e. how much noise is in the data) and value.

Speed of Current Breakthroughs

You get to learn how you can exploit Big Data by analyzing your existing information and data landscape to identify and close performance and vaue gaps in your enterprise operations.

Traditional systems can’t analyze, process and store large amounts of unstructured data. We help you to develop a strategy that enables you to divert to Big Data solutions to obtain the needed actionable data from the physical, virtual and digital world. All participants then learns how to take advantage of the exponential innovation that Big Data enables.

The Big Data Boot Camp Program is tailored to help your organization to take advantage of the potential around Big Data. Here are some of the potential benefits listed around Big Data:

  • Big Data is Timely: 60 percent of each work day, knowledge workers spend it trying to find and manage the data. Big Data can provide timely reports immediately.
  • Big Data is Accessible: Half of senior executives indicate that access to correct data is often difficult.
  • Big Data is Holistic: The information is currently stored in silos within many organizations. Marketing data, for example, can be found in web analytics, mobile analysis, social analysis, CRM systems, A/B testing tools, email marketing systems, and many other sites each with its focus on its silo.
  • Big Data is Reliable: Things as simple as securing the correct contact data of customers through the review of multiple systems can save thousands of Dollars in incorrectly sent communications.
  • Big Data is Relevant: 43 percent of companies are not satisfied with the ability of their tools to filter irrelevant data.
  • Big Data is Safe: A breach of data security costs hundreds of dollars per customer.
  • Big Data is Precise: Businesses have difficulty with multiple versions of the fact based on the supply of their info. Combining multiple reliable sources, businesses can create accurate correct of intelligence.
  • Big Data is Usable: Many companies make bad decisions due to obsolete or bad data. Big Data can ensure that the data is usable without fear of mistakes.
