Big Data – Windfall or Waterfall? Find out at HP Discover 2013

johncummings on ‎11-22-2013 07:03 PM

The massive amounts of data that companies generate can be a blessing or a curse – a windfall for the hunters of insights or a waterfall of too much information. Increasingly, businesses are finding that Big Data technology can help channel the data deluge. And it can do a lot more than that. In fact, the primary reason organizations are investing in Big Data solutions is to integrate and analyze a wide variety of data, according to a survey of large enterprises by NewVantage.


Eight-five percent of poll participants said that they have a Big Data initiative in place or in progress. If you’re heading in the same direction, you’ll want to check out our Big Data offerings at HP Discover 2013 in Barcelona, December 10-12.
