Big data technologies have become a fad in the industry, and big organizations are keen to ride the wave. But not many have succeeded in leveraging the true potential of big data. The challenges faced are not only technological but also in change management.
At Barclays, we have succeeded in building initial info-led propositions based on the ability to analyze terabytes of data in seconds. We overcame the challenges of bringing together structured and unstructured data by employing innovative solutions. Ankit Tharwani delivered an intelligent big data proposition, and the first big data capability for the bank, by cutting across layers and bringing together platforms at Barclays. He will talk of his journey of migrating from legacy tools to leverage the infinite potential of cutting-edge technologies to open doors to new use cases. Ankit will also talk about the technology vision for the bank, and how the strategic data landscape is evolving to make way for the likes of Hadoop.
