Systematic approach to transition an Enterprise Data Warehouse with Big Data technologies.
Presenter: Rajiv Synghal – Kaiser Permanente

There is a tremendous pressure on the business to constantly “Transform & Evolve” itself because of competitive, regulatory and spiraling cost. Specifically, looking at new ways to perform your daily tasks – faster, better cheaper; both in terms of automating manual processes for data extraction, data alignment and extending the predictability of a operations model by using enriched data both in depth and breadth. To adopt big data technologies effectively, the business and IT organizations need to form a tight partnership and extract business context out of existing data warehouse workloads.

In this talk, Rajiv will share his experiences by selecting examples in geo-spatial industry and healthcare. He will showcase a systematic approach to demystify existing data warehousing workloads. He will also discuss the discovery of usage patterns and hidden data dependencies to help aid the business case and TCO for liberating enterprise data from traditional systems.


Big Data MBA – Business Value Creation out of Big Data.
Presenter: Bill Schmarzo
The concept behind the Big Data MBA is very simple: use business opportunities that are associated with improving your value creation processes, optimizing key business processes and uncovering new monetization opportunities to drive all of your data, data management, and analytics-related technology decisions.While the concept is simple, the work associated with putting together and executing a plan to get value out of big data requires focus and commitment. It requires understanding your targeted business initiative, how that initiative makes the organization money and how the business stakeholders will use the resulting analytic insights in their day-to-day jobs.

Bill will present his ideas to create and fine-tune mockups in order to better understand exactly how the analytics need to be implemented in a way that will make the business users most effective. And a great side benefit is that in the process, the business and IT folks will have created a relationship of working hand-in-hand to leverage big data to power big business.
