Westport, CT (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
“Big Data” is an increasingly-used but often ill-defined term, spurred in large part through the growth of Cloud IT and Cloud Business. To guide IT and business leaders into and through Big Data’s effects and benefits, Cloud research leader Saugatuck Technology today released a Strategic Management Study addressing two important aspects of Big Data:
- Determining how emerging Big Data technologies can aid them in developing real business solutions; and
- Understanding the components of Big Data solutions to make appropriate choices that meet specific requirements.
“Understanding Big Data: A Management Study” also enables IT providers to better understand the Big Data environment, including both the storage and access requirements and repercussions in Analytics.
“To get the benefits of Big Data, IT and business leaders need to understand what lurks beneath the surface,” stated Saugatuck SVP and head of research Bruce Guptill. “In the case of Big Data, the intersection of massive data flows, open source foundations, and Cloud IT creates challenges along with tremendous benefits – if we know what to look for and how to see it.”
With this Saugatuck Management Study, readers will get the clearest possible picture of growing Big Data infrastructure and analytics environments, and how these components work together and fit into the emerging Big Data ecosystem. Readers will also learn the three areas of fundamental importance in understanding Big Data:
- Big Data Infrastructure
- Big Data Analytics
- Cloud facilitation of Big Data processing
Copies of this Strategic Management Study are available to the media by request, and to businesses at Saugatuck Technology’s website.
