Finally, can each of you give us some summarising "words of wisdom" for CIOs or IT people wanting to be that Big Data champion? http://www.via-cc.at...

Dr Thore Rabe
do it structured and right - end to end
Jen Stirrup
technology is a catalyst for fundamental reform of the entire organization. Clear signposts reqd!
Dr Thore Rabe
do not do it alone - put the right team externally and internally together
Sebastian Darrington
Think outside of your vertical. Use Cases from other verticals could be pertinent to your own.
Dr Thore Rabe
a neutral external agency can help
Dr Thore Rabe
focus should be creativity and the business case
unbelievable machine
disrupt yourself before someone else does it for you!
Dr Thore Rabe
does´t matter how big your company is
unbelievable machine
big data projects are NOT simply IT projects
Tatianna Flores
end-to-end solutions must be flexible and adaptable to your long-term needs #bullion #scalable #alien4cloud #RapidTransformation #CodexSolution
unbelievable machine
think big data projects across all business units because in the end they will all be affected
Ross Porter
creativity and innovation are key.
Celine Boussidan
@thorerabe an external resource that will help navigate the complexity of the boardroom... different and eventually conflecting objectives
Tatianna Flores
don't get lost in the big data landscape #Codex #AtosConsulting
Suhela Dighe
Let's talk about ways to becoming that #BigData Champion! What are your recommendations when starting on this journey? http://www.via-cc.at...

Sebastian Darrington
Data is Dumb. It requires a highly skilled team to prove hypothesis, extract meaning and generate new revenue streams
Sebastian Darrington
A platform for self service big data analytics is critical to getting the most from that team. In fact I am discussing this tomorrow bit.ly/2bMsoAD
Dr Thore Rabe
best case would be to have a visional talk on executive level
Jen Stirrup
Executive sponsorship is essential. It's not just in the hands of the CIO or in IT.
Dr Thore Rabe
after the visionary workshop you should go one level below to discuss with all the stakeholders how it could look like more concrete
Jen Stirrup
#BigData technology is divided into two main areas: customer experience or business ops.
Jen Stirrup
Does the org want improve customer experience (blue pill) or business ops (red pill)? #DigitalTransformation
Dr Thore Rabe
this is the reason why the have CDOs or external agencies
Sebastian Darrington
@jenstirrup @thorerabe and including the leaders of the line of business
unbelievable machine
Big Data projects are not IT only projects. All relevant business units need to be involved
Tatianna Flores
Focus on compliment existing strategies and tool sets
Ross Porter
Identify business stakeholders who can articulate desirable business outcomes
Tatianna Flores
@unbelievable_m It truly is an end-to-end process - infrastructure, service, support, rinse, repeat.
Dr Thore Rabe
the discussion has to be not technical - talk business
Jen Stirrup
there will always be friction. Humans are averse to change.
Dr Thore Rabe
infrastructure is the last they should discuss
unbelievable machine
@TheStorageChap completey right. data is definitly dump
unbelievable machine
actually the quality of data is crucial for each machine learning approach
Sebastian Darrington
When in comes to storage for big data, ILM principals are as important as they ever where. The more data you can store for longer the better the potential insights.
Celine Boussidan
@TheStorageChap I will be joining this webinar too... still on the "data is dumb" comment
Celine Boussidan
@jenstirrup I agree, Big Data and digital transformation are topics for the boardroom
Suhela Dighe
We had a great blog by @thorerabe on the key elements to modernise business infrastructure in the big data context: https://www.linkedin...
Celine Boussidan
@jenstirrup how to manage both: the blue pill and the red pill?
Jen Stirrup
Data is interesting when it is put with other data. #DigitalTransformation allows you to focus on horizontal, not vertical data
Sebastian Darrington
Don't forget the importance of Applications. Digital Transformation requires Big Data, Analytics AND Applications. Apps are where orgs meet their consumers. Build Apps, Capture Information, Analyse for Insight, Iterate.
Suhela Dighe
The first point was around that companies need to get analytics programs moving. Secondly, the need for best practice sharing in data analytics projects to not having to reinvent the wheel.
Celine Boussidan
@unbelievable_m including... Marketing a key business function driving quite a number of innovative and transformational projects
Suhela Dighe
The 3rd challenge to address is how to cope with the vast and growing amounts of unstructured data in their file services environment. @DellEMCisilon have an answer for that.
Jen Stirrup
orgs can't spread themselves too thinly. You'll see success pop up downstream of your efforts.
Tatianna Flores
@TheStorageChap @suzyspaatz and then implementing tools to auto-deploy your apps in hybrid cloud environments? #alien4cloud
Suhela Dighe
Do we have examples of companies who have combined technology and organisational changes to gain competitive advantage. http://www.via-cc.at...

Jen Stirrup
I recently helped deliver a project for a healthcare organisation, which had a great #DigitalTransformation program with a focus on business purpose first
Jen Stirrup
One of my projects was mentioned here: http://www.bbc.co.uk...
Jen Stirrup
Businesses can do so much to help themselves with #DigitalTransformation
Sebastian Darrington
Pechanga, a casino in Temecula. Pechanga realised significant benefit from EMC’s Big Data Solution in the form of much deeper customer interaction and getting return business.
Jen Stirrup
The secret is: people must work together. Leave egos at the door. Look through other people's lenses #DigitalTransformation
Dr Thore Rabe
from the retail in sector in Germany we go for multi channel concepts to get products easier to consume and produce....data analytics was a big part of the decision process and the actual business process
Jen Stirrup
#BigData projects are essentially collaboration projects. It's key to pull the pieces and people together in one vision
Sebastian Darrington
Inovalon, a data service provider to the healthcare and insurance market. Their whole business model is based on their ability to deliver data to that market with additional value-add in terms of the insights they can generate.

Suhela Dighe
#DellEMC will be also be at @hortonworks #futureofdatashow, #clouderasesh & #SplunkLive across EMEA this autumn. https://community.em... - More opportunity to talk about case studies.
Suhela Dighe
Coaches, how do we transform the organisation with #BigData tech? How do we deal with data siloes, for example?
Jen Stirrup
we need to look horizontally across the organisation to show effects of #DigitalTransformation
Dr Thore Rabe
we need them consolidated this would also solve the savings issue in parallel
Sebastian Darrington
- Data Silos need to be consolidated, but the data still needs to be governed and secured.
Jen Stirrup
So, a revenue increase could mean reduced operational costs while optimizing sales
unbelievable machine
most large companies have a big zoo of different data storages. data scientist need effective access to all of them. thus consolidating the data landscape should be on the agenda
Sebastian Darrington
When you think about the technology requirements to get the most from Big Data think, Ingest, Store, Analyse, Surface, Act.
Jen Stirrup
need to understand priorities e.g. is the focus on operational efficiencies? mobile and online presence? #DigitalTransformation
Dr Thore Rabe
very important is access and secure data
Jen Stirrup
organisations are very good at answering siloed questions
Sebastian Darrington
When in comes to storage for big data, ILM principals are as important as they ever where. Tiered storage that can span on-prem AND off-prem solutions is important.
Celine Boussidan
@jenstirrup and include all the business functions... with Marketing 1st :-)
Dr Thore Rabe
and BD and Sales and IT
Jen Stirrup
if the data is held in silos, then the #analytics are also siloed. This is the power of
Celine Boussidan
@unbelievable_m the rise of the data steward
Jen Stirrup
siloed data doesn't mean that we need a huge #datawarehouse.
Sebastian Darrington
@CelineLBo In South Africa they talked about the maître d' storage!
unbelievable machine
when it comes to store and analyze large amounts of data many of our customers use Hadoop and Spark
Celine Boussidan
@jenstirrup the priority is to stay relevant and competitive while driving operational efficiencies
Jen Stirrup
A #datalake means people ask right horizontal qs across the business, not within a department
Tatianna Flores
@thorerabe @suzyspaatz shared platform infrastructure should incorporate tiered protection strategies - software defined storage models, encryption, network segmentation
Jen Stirrup
@CelineLBo yes, it's difficult to balance. Usually solved by 'who shouts the loudest' gets the attention
Celine Boussidan
@TheStorageChap I keep going back to how to access the data or how to ensure that the different functions "release" the data needed to go to the datalake
Celine Boussidan
@jenstirrup who shouts the loudest :-)
Sebastian Darrington
@jenstirrup @CelineLBo The HIPPO Challenge - Highest Paid Persons Opinion!

@CelineLBo well from my experience there is a strong demand for it
