Challenges of big data

Big data is set to offer companies tremendous insight. But with terabytes and petabytes of data pouring into organizations today, traditional architectures and infrastructures are not up to the challenge. IT teams are burdened with ever-growing requests for data, adhoc analyzes and one-off reports. Decision makers become frustrated because it takes hours or days to get answers to questions, if at all, more users are expecting self-service access to information in a form they can easily understand and share with others.

  • Meeting the need for speed
