    to know better Big Data
  7. None
  8. Open OPEN

  9. Big Data Spain has growth

  10. Big Data competitive advantage

  11. Value and real ROI are the best KPIs • Increase

    of client acquisitions • Resource optimization • Increase in sales • Customer loyalty
  12. The gravitational pull of Big Data is now so strong

    that even people who haven't got a clue as to what it's all about report that they're running Big Data projects.
  13. Impossible vs Possible “The art of possible” “Impossible is not

    a fact, it’s an
  14. My Dilemma

  15. “I know I have to use Big Data but…” How

    important is it for me? How do I start to use it? When? With what technology? How do I acquire the knowledge?
  16. How important is it for me?

  19. None
  20. What technology/products should I use?

  21. Bigtab le From Big Data 1.0 To Big Data 2.0

    Big query F1 > 10 YEARS GAP A Technological Change
  22. ∙ Up to 100x faster ∙ Interactive analysis or low

    latency queries ∙ NoSQL more SQL like ∙ In memory systems ∙ Real time data streaming combination BIG DATA STATE OF THE ART Big Data 2.0
  23. NoSQL more sql like: Datastax with Cassandra 2.0 version 10Gen

    with the evolution of MongoDB Hadoop 2.0: Hadoop 2.0 with Yarn and other fantastic features Special thanks to the hortonworks team Interactive analysis: Hortonworks with Stinger Cloudera with Impala MapR with drill In memory systems: Stratio will talk about in memory systems integration: Interactive analytic: Spark and Cassandra Search engines: Lucene in memory and Cassandra
  24. We will see the different aspects of the second generation

    of Big Data, and we can tell you that it is really very impressive
  25. How to start? How to use it?

  26. Iterative and progressive Choose a particular use case with a

    clear ROI and time and Budget limits Make it a quick win, and expand it… vs Big Bang Avoid building a Big Data generic system and then implementing projects over them
  27. Predictions

  28. Decisions will be data-driven Industries will be reordered based on

    data and analytics. Big Data technologies will be the only way to navigate through all of this data. Data will have to be governed. User experience will matter. Owning the data will be everything. New business models will emerge. More products and services will have intelligence Businesses will target individuals, not markets
  29. Notes of caution

  30. Be careful, it is not a silver bullet Not everything

    is gold: Big data is one thing, but there are a lot of meaningless data Be careful with the invasion of privacy Data security is a risk and a responsibility
  31. If analytics and predictions are automated you will loose any

    analytical advantage Trust your team to make the right questions and take the right decisions: The ultimate intelligence is in the people It is still an art to figure out what the right questions are
  32. Combine technologies The bottom line is, use the right technology

    for whatever it is you need
  33. Final recommendations

  34. Big data is exciting, complex, and raises difficult issues, but

    to ignore it may be the biggest risk of all
  35. So the question is: Are you already using Big Data?

    to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where –" said Alice. "Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat. "—so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough." Don’t wait, start today
