Big Data is changing how we work and live. Understanding how and why is important to gauge and identify the technological challenges it will impose. In this video, EMC's Patricia Florissi, VP and Global CTO, provides concrete evidence as to how Big Data is transforming our lives and why we need to be able to have "Big Data conversations" with our customers today.
Big Data is an extraordinary knowledge revolution that is sweeping through business, academia, government, healthcare, and everyday life. It enables us to provide a healthier life for our children, ensure safety and independence for older people, conserve precious resources like water and energy, and peer into our own individual, genetic makeup. The term “Big Data” describes the accumulation and analysis of vast amounts of information. But Big Data is much more than big data. It’s also the ability to extract meaning: to sort through masses of numbers and find the hidden patterns and unexpected correlations. You’ll learn from use cases what it takes to extract that value from Big Data, and which solutions are available to acquire, store, analyze, and act on Big Data. We will also introduce SAP Rapid Deployment solutions, which help businesses adopt Big Data solutions. This course is delivered through the openSAP platform. To watch this training, you will have to log in with your openSAP ID (or create one for free if you do not have one).
You will be introduced to the concepts behind real-time software and the opportunities afforded by big-data processing. You then apply your new expertise practically in a case study using SAP HANA.
