New point-of-view on Big Data projects unveils ten things every CIO should know
Austin, Texas — June 5, 2012 — StoredIQ
, the leader in providing active information management
solutions, today announced ‘The Truth About Big Data’
, a new online book for enterprises designed to serve as a blueprint for Big Data management issues. Whether you’re a CIO, IT manager, records or compliance officer, or corporate counsel; the e-book is designed to get you out in front of the challenge of managing the ‘Truth About Big Data’
in your organization. It’s the first in a series of booklets that will unravel the myths behind what Big Data is, and the management solutions that will work to unlock its value.
Big Data is now synonymous with ‘volume, variety, velocity, and value’ which relate to how much data you have, how many data types there are, how fast the data is changing, and what potential impact the data might have on your business. Unmanaged, unstructured data is the primary source of Big Data growth, as well as the cause for IT and corporate pain. Decreasing the risks and costs, and increasing the value of managing Big Data assets is a corporate imperative.
“After many conversations with industry analysts, customers, and other companies struggling with data management issues, we think we’ve identified a good core list of ten things every CIO should look at as they engage in Big Data projects, and they may not be what you think,” said Phil Myers, CEO of StoredIQ. “This booklet calls into question some long-standing beliefs about how companies should manage their data, and we think it’s a good first step toward changing the CIO mindset.”
There’s a lot of buzz about how Big Data will transform your business with diagnostics and dashboards distributed directly to business users. The truth is someday Big Data will do just that, if your organization can clear a few hurdles in getting its data under control. Without effective management controls, Big Data is like a fast rising Tsunami threatening to overrun IT organizations.
This might not be the kind of news Big Data advocates want to hear. Then again, nothing is more elusive than having a conversation about the truth. Begin your Big Data conversation today. Download the ‘Truth About Big Data’ at www.storediq.com/the-truth-about-big-data
