How do businesses address the challenges of growing volume and variety of data? How can I introduce new data sources and workloads into my architecture? How do I achieve better time to value and agility in my infrastructure?
If you're wrestling with these and other related questions, I recommend you look into a newly released paper called, “Architecting a Big Data Platform for Analytics” by industry analyst Mike Ferguson of Intelligent Business Strategies. In this paper, Ferguson explores the requirements and considerations for building an enterprise big data analytic ecosystem. Considering more than 20 years of market maturity, the paper addresses the challenges facing businesses with multiple data warehouses and data marts.
