Building Confidence in Big Data through Context


As organizations begin pursing big data initiatives, they discover how important it is to have an understanding of the underlying data used to generate relevant insight. Organizations - and the people in them - must have confidence in the data or they simply will not use it to its fullest potential. In this discussion, Claudia Imhoff, president of Intelligent Solutions and founder of Boulder BI Brain Trust, talks with David Corrigan, director of IBM InfoSphere product marketing, about the considerations that organizations should think about when trying to achieve this level of confidence, which ultimately will help lead to project success. Imhoff and Corrigan talk about the importance of data governance, integration, security, privacy and working with Hadoop.
