Big Data Operational Readiness: What companies should consider when transitioning to Big Data

Benjamin Wong, Director, APJ | March 3, 2016
The adoption of big data and analytics technologies significantly varies across different regions and industries. How far have businesses in the Asia-Pacific region progressed with this trend?

It is essential to recognise that data integration and accessibility is a critical component to a big data vision. Enterprises should assess the data integration challenges and consider the use of tools that provide a unified method for Business Intelligence/Analytics applications to gain access to a broad spectrum of data sources, regardless of where those data sources might reside, whether that is in the cloud, within the enterprise, or even behind a firewall. At the same time, it's important to make sure that bi-directional data accessibility is supported and heritage applications can access NoSQL and Hadoop storage environments in ways that are scalable from a performance perspective yet provide high availability.

In summary: Making informed decisions about the adoption of big data within the context of an overall enterprise application renovation strategy is the key to successful incorporation and deployment.
