Big Data, Big Buzz, Big Distraction: A New Keynote Speech By Andrew Bailey
"The other thing we know," he tells the audience, "is that people—generally—in organizations don't like to share. So, data ends up being in silos." This separation of data can impact your end result. It's important to have everyone on the team working toward the same clearly defined goal while keeping the business metrics in mind, he says. That way, you can decrease the amount of data siloing taking place. And, you can be sure that you will be able to both access the data you want, and, use the data in the way you need to achieve your goal. Finally, ensure that you have the right capability and skill set within your team before taking on a project; a set of employees who are capable of getting the results you want and will see the project through from start to finish.
In talks like this one, Andrew Bailey shows audiences that there's a difference between big data and raw numbers. Bailey describes the key features of big data and what it can do, but even more importantly he focuses on its limitations. He shows you the importance of knowing what you are looking for when utilizing big data, why it matters, and how you can marry that information to your goals and strategy.
