Unifying the approach to big data

While much of the focus in the world of big data is on social media and other forms of new data, enterprises today are still struggling to manage hundreds if not thousands of legacy data sets created over the past couple of decades to run critical lines of business. Add to this complex task the desire to start integrating new forms of data such as machine and social data – what is typically called big data – and the task for enterprises is a monumental one.

This webinar will examine how the worlds of old and new data are coming together and how to best manage this in an enterprise to achieve business and financial goals. It will also look at case studies of companies who have made successful transitions in unifying their data.
