Here's an event I think you should take a look at. We talk about Big Data all the time.
But what are the practical applications and how can we understand the ramifications of ignoring Big Data?
Our friend Mike at MWAi and SAP are conducting a webinar, hosted by The Imaging Channel.
This is good stuff - I recommend attending.
Data volume is growing at a rate of more than 50 percent per month < 800 percent in the next 5 years. By the year 2020 there will be 50 billion connected devices on the planet. With this incredible information and connectivity explosion, analytic platform adoption has already become the most significant spending shift in corporate database systems, with real-time business intelligence and timely analytics rapidly becoming the top priority for today's successful businesses.
What you will learn:
1. Proper utilization of big data and implementation of a robust business intelligence practice will help companies improve business performance with real-time business visibility and financial insights.
2. Achieve faster monthly, quarterly and annual closes with real-time, precise financial reporting that empowers business principles to focus on running their business, not chasing the numbers.
3. Eliminate long planning cycles and improve alignment of business plans with strategy, making it easy to provide up-to-date management reports and analysis across the organization with harmonized data (single version of the truth) that generates accurate financial reports that comply with GAAP, IFRS, FASB, and IAS; greatly reducing cycle time with extreme accuracy.
