Creating business value with Big Data
Big Data is a container term used to describe an area where machine learning, huge amounts of data as well as analytics come together. With all the hype of the technology, the business value side tends to be forgotten. How to identify the business value and set priorities for ‘Big Data’ initiatives? Using strategy frameworks and IT portfolio management models, I will present an approach to make sense of the many developments and opportunities in this area.
