Companies whose investments focus on growing talent in data sciences help not only their processes, but also the company as a whole. In our most recent global study on big data analytics, we concluded that the gap between the demand for analytics talent globally and the supply of analytics talent
Big Data promises to intelligently join and mine hundreds of millions, and even billions, of records for various applications that require trusted data about customers, products, locations and other entities. Without quantifiable and verifiable confidence in data, the information originated from
This datagram quickly explains the nine levers that enable organizations to create value from an ever-growing volume of data from a variety of sources -- value that results from insights derived and actions taken at every level of the organization.
Twice recently, in two different large companies, people whom I have otherwise respected as being quite sensible have said to me that their organisations had appointed people who, within their own function, were ‘responsible for data quality’.

One natural consequence of the influx of big data is that organizations are modernizing their infrastructures to do a better job of ingesting data from new sources, identifying data that has value, and leveraging that data. As they address those challenges and tap into the opportunity that lies

To help enterprises create trusted insight as the volume, velocity and variety of data continue to explode, IBM offers several solutions designed to help organizations uncover previously unavailable insights and use them to support and inform decisions across the business. Combining the power of
With 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created every day, organizations cannot wait to establish business-driven protection policies for keeping data safe. The rising volume of data and the growing number of analytics systems storing sensitive data exponentially increases the risk of breaches. IBM®
More data, more problems? Not if you have an agile, automated information integration and governance program in place. Automating information integration and governance and employing it at the point of data creation helps organizations boost confidence in their big data. A solid information
