“We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run” - Roy Charles Amara
Mr Amara, an American researcher and futurist, probably didn’t anticipate how much wisdom was encapsulated in just a few words. Buying technology is hard. And Enterprise IT buyers are often left with the hard task of determining if the new piece of technology they just heard about is pure hype or if it has hope. Where are they to find consistent guidance?

It’s becoming more and more crucial for businesses to find ways to gather, use, and analyze big data. After all, big data is by far the most effective tool for keeping accurate and thorough track of customers and employees, as well as the most efficient way to predict future behaviors. However, big data is notoriously complex, unstructured, and massive, making it extremely difficult to manage without the proper tools.
Despite the challenges associated with data warehousing, enterprise IT leaders have accepted it as a necessary evil of deriving value from information within Hadoop and other Big Data ecosystems. How much does it cost to create data warehouses or datamarts that extract data out of Hadoop? Is there a better way to do BI on Big Data?!
Everybody knows that Big Data is a big deal. Or do they? In a recent keynote at Silicon Valley’s latest Big Data Show, we unveiled key insights about the maturity of organizations using Big Data.

Industry leaders know that their challenges with data analytics are spread across 4 areas: confirmation (‘the things they know they know’); intuition (‘the things they don’t know they know’); inspection (‘the things they know they don’t know’); and revelation (‘the things they don’t know they don’t know).
This last category is often the most tragic for organizations. Luckily, we now have helpful resources from Tom Davenport's latest webinar on Data Strategy to key research data points on chief data executive's priorities.
