If you plan to leverage big-data to enhance operational efficiency and agility -- and thus improve customer service -- you need to lay the building blocks. Especially if your analytics capacity is going to be cloud-based.
That's the message you'll be hearing in today's 7DEE presentation by Paul Burns.
Paul is president of Neovise, an analyst firm focused on cloud-related services and technology. Neovise issues whitepapers and perspective reports on topics including building personalized cloud servers, integration between cloud and existing systems, out-of-the-box cloud integration, private clouds for the enterprise, and data protection.
If you're still in the early stages of planning migration to a public or private cloud, or if you're still pondering how cloud computing can support big-data analytics for your business, there are a number of questions you likely need answered. How do I make sure cloud services integrate with heritage systems? How do I make sure that data I put in the cloud stays safe? How can I ensure that the analytics I plan to run in the cloud give me clear, practicable results? And how do I communicate these results to my employees, in a useable format, and preferably in real-time?
Paul is going to have answers to these questions in 7DEE today, and he'll be addressing the midmarket in particular. He'll talk about the pros and cons of private and public cloud, as well as how to get more bang for the buck from Hadoop, Flash storage, and other solutions.
