    Decisions First: How to stop wasting money on Big Data

    Big Data is hot. Organizations are dealing with greater volumes of data, more variety of data and data that arrives with increasing velocity. These “Big Data” challenges are leading to new technologies and new investments in those technologies. For too many organizations, however, investments in Big Data have become semi-detached from their business goals and operations. Money is being spent, and wasted, on Big Data for projects that are pure research with no business goal.
    In this session James Taylor, CEO and Principal Consultant at Decision Management Solutions and author of several books on Decision Management, will outline an approach that focuses Big Data investments on creating business value. 
    • Begin by identifying the metrics and measures that define success
    • Discover the decisions that make a difference to these metrics, especially day to day operational decisions
    • Model these decisions to identify clear opportunities for analytic insight to make a difference
    • Drive back to the Big Data you need to deliver this insight
