Forthcoming webinar: Spice Up Your Big Data & BI Apps with a Little Variety

On Wednesday, May 29 at 12:00 PM ET I’ll be taking part in a webinar with Datawatch on the subject of adding variety to your business intelligence applications.

As the worlds of business intelligence and big data begin to converge, just getting information from traditional sources like databases and data warehouses is not going to deliver a complete view of what’s impacting your business.

To truly get a 360 degree view of what’s driving your business today you are going to need to deal with data volume, velocity and variety in your business intelligence solutions.

This means incorporating information from unstructured and semi-structured sources like external reports, PDF files, EDI streams, Log files, XBRL sources and a host of other data types that are part of the fabric of today’s information potpourri.

I will discuss the origins of big data and how it is changing the database landscape and how 451 Research’s related concept of Total Data, describing new approaches to processing and analyzing data, can help you to think big but start small to get your big data projects up and running.

O’ll be joined by Jon Pilkington, VP of Products from Datawatch, who will describe how Datawatch can help you spice up your BI and Big Data solutions with the Datawatch Information Optimization platform.
