New Report – May 2013
While big data has received great attention, the question of how to create value remains open. What remains to be seen is whether companies will be able to navigate the never-ending flow of information to create real insight. This topic was directly addressed at Temple University’s first Big Data Conference, hosted by the Fox School of Business. Seventeen speakers from the retail, pharmaceutical, technology, aerospace, insurance, education, consulting, and public sectors shared stories, examples, and best practices on Big Data. This report summarizes their insights, highlighting several illustrative use cases from Chartis, Merck, and Accenture. The report also presents several key takeaways as well as a list of “Do’s and Don’ts” for organizations looking to get started with big data.
