It’s Complicated: The Love Hate Relationship with Data.

Posted by Lucio Daza on Feb 12, 2018

Data, Data, Data! All the facts, numbers, and everything in between that, when collected, can be analyzed and decisions made based upon them. Can’t live with it! Can’t live without it! This year over $14 billion will be spent globally on flowers, chocolate, and jewelry on Valentine’s Day alone. According to CIO Research, big data analytics investments are expected to be close to $187 billion. We are definitely investing more on data than expensive chocolates! The big question is, are your data investments nurturing your relationship with data the same way a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates can nurture your relationships?Hear Success Stories From Enterprises like yours, Check Out This Webinar!

How to Become Data Driven in Four Easy Steps

Posted by Lucio Daza on Feb 7, 2018

Does your decision-making process need an overhaul? In 2015, over 60% of the decisions made by companies were still based on ‘intuition’ or ‘experience’ of their executive team. With the rise of big data, it is imperative that we make use of such a valuable asset to make fact-based decisions and not just provide an opinion. This means that we need to become data-driven, of course this is easier said than done. It requires more than investing on the latest data and analytics software; it also requires cultural and organizational change.

The 6 Principles of Modern Data Architecture

Posted by Joshua Klahr on Jan 19, 2018

A version of this article originally appeared on the Cloudera VISION blog.

One of my favorite parts of my role is that I get to spend time with customers and prospects, learning what’s important to them as they move to a modern data architecture. Lately, a consistent set of six themes has emerged during these discussions. The themes span industries, use cases and geographies, and I’ve come to think of them as the key principles underlying an enterprise data architecture.

Whether you’re responsible for data, systems, analysis, strategy or results, you can use these principles to help you navigate the fast-paced modern world of data and decisions. Think of them as the foundation for data architecture that will allow your business to run at an optimized level today, and into the future.
