BI and Big Data: Separate Worlds or Good Neighbors?

Business Intelligence (BI) and Big Data are each technologies designed to help users get insights from their data. But the two approaches are from different eras and have different technological underpinnings. Although numerous integrations exist between the two, their unique pedigrees have resulted in separate vendor ecosystems, varied cloud services, distinct skill sets and even a bifurcation among users. But there needn’t be a “great divide” between BI and Big Data. A continuum can be achieved, between communities, technologies, project implementations and, perhaps most important, the respective data repositories and pipelines.


Join our guests Angel Abundez, VP of Solutions Architecture and Mark Kidwell, CTO, from DesignMind, a San Francisco consultancy specializing in hardcore BI and Big Data implementations, for their views on this crucial subject. This special Io-Tahoe webinar will be moderated by Andrew Brust, Io-Tahoe’s Market Strategy Advisor, ZDNet Big Data Blogger and Founder/CEO of Blue Badge Insights.

The Enterprise Value of Governed Data


Whether instinctively, or taken on authority, we all know that clean, accurate, fully discovered data is a good thing.  But can we get more concrete? Can we discuss the value of fully vetted, mapped and inventoried data for Enterprise workers?  Does that value differ for business users, the Chief Data Officer, IT and data stewards?  Toph Whitmore, a veteran analytics company executive and lead research analyst, and Andrew Brust, Io-Tahoe’s Market Strategy Advisor, discuss this and more.
