Turning data into trustworthy information is one of the toughest challenges facing businesses today. We’ve been able to collect, manage, and query data with very advanced data processing frameworks like Apache Hadoop in both on-premises and cloud deployments and have the ability to create innovative analytical models using algorithmic techniques and beautiful visualizations. However, executives remain annoyed, pessimistic, and frustrated as the simplest business questions cannot be answered—or if they can be, the answers are incorrect or take too long. Frankly, we’ve created data swamps of #deplorable data. Prakash Nanduri explains how to solve this challenge.
