The first decade of big data was often measured in terabytes and petabytes, but data volumes don’t translate to business value. What matters is your data platform’s ability to support unprecedented numbers of business users and use cases. Anupam Singh and Brian Coyne look at some of the challenges posed by data-hungry organizations and share new techniques to extract meaningful insights at the speed of today’s modern business.
