Big data analytics brings value to enterprises, helping them achieve operational excellence. The big question is how you implement it. How do you combine people with many different job functions (data science, SW development, business acumen, etc.) into one unit to solve a real problem and deliver an end-to-end solution; different business organizations inside the enterprise (product development, manufacturing, sales and marketing, security, etc.) in order to have a cross-enterprise effect; and different technologies (NoSQL databases, Spark, relational databases, data science tools, etc.) in order to create a platform that can serve different needs?
The Advanced Analytics team at Intel has been in charge of delivering dozens of big data analytics projects over the last five years. The projects the team delivered in 2015 brought an ROI of over $200M. Assaf Araki and Itay Yogev share how Intel built a big data analytics competency center, exploring the key elements that help Intel grow its people and capabilities (in an environment that keeps shrinking IT services) and the challenges and lessons learned, drawing on firsthand stories from the project in the domains of validations, manufacturing, and sales. This story is not finished yet. The Advanced Analytics team continues to bring value to the enterprise, growing big data analytics into a $1B business.
