Big Data Readiness Assessment

You have heard about big data, but what does it really mean for your company? PREDICTif’s Big Data Readiness Assessment is designed to strip away the “hype” from big data, and drill into the critical questions that matter such as: “Is Big Data relevant to your business?” and if so “How do you prepare for the challenge?” Or maybe you’re asking questions like “Which big data projects will deliver the biggest and fastest returns with the lowest risk?” or “How will big data fit into an existing technical environment?” These are critical questions that need to be answered before you embark on the big data journey.

Big Data is an approach for maximizing the linear scalability, deployment and execution flexibility, and cost-effectiveness of analytic data platforms. It relies on such underlying approaches as massively parallel processing, in-database execution, storage optimization, data virtualization, and mixed-workload management.
