Big Data — Where are we now, and what’s next? An interview with Tom Norton

on ‎06-05-2013 10:17 PM

With HP Discover 2013 days away, and big data sure to be a major focus of the event, I caught up with Tom Norton, VP of Big Data Services, Technology Services Consulting, to get his take on the current big data landscape and the infrastructure impact of the new technologies. Check out our HP Straight Talk podcast:


  • Where do enterprises stand now in terms of revamping their infrastructure to capitalize on big data?


  • What are the key elements of a workable model that would enable enterprises to optimize the various parts of their infrastructure for big data?


  • How does a big data refinery work? What tools fit into it? How do you leverage your current data warehouse and BI tools?


  • What’s driving interest in big data in the business, and in IT?



For Tom’s thoughts on moving big data from plan to reality, see his recent blog Big Data rubber meets the production IT road.


And watch this blog for another post from Tom next week, when he’ll discuss exciting big data news from HP Discover 2013.
