Data. It’s the new raw material of business, with an economic impact almost on par with capital and labor. We hear a lot about big data solutions, but to turn data into actionable information for your competitive advantage, the volume, variety, and velocity of data from multiple sources needs to be combined and harnessed in just the right way. When your data streams come from everywhere, like transactional systems, sensors, devices, click stream and web logs, social media, emails, audio, and images, asking the right questions is as important as finding the correct answer. In this session, we will discuss real-world customer deployment scenarios that succeeded with the help of Red Hat. We’ll show how these technologies can help harness data from a multitude of sources and turn it into your business advantages (or assets).
