Big data is being thrown around as a silver-bullet solution to enable organizational agility and transformation. All your data in one place sounds great on paper, but is it really? Thomas Place explores the big data journey of the world’s biggest payment processor, which came dangerously close to building a data swamp before pivoting to embrace governance and quality-first patterns. This case study includes patterns, partners, successes, failures, and lessons learned to date and reviews the journey ahead.
