In a digital world, long-term competitiveness is directly tied to an organization’s ability to extract insights that will create value in their company from information that resides in vast amounts of data, collected from an equally vast array of sources.

This evolution of business intelligence is being supercharged by exciting advances in information management technologies such as big data platforms. 

Rob Wentz, KPMG’s U.S. Leader for Information Management, explains how modern data platforms can collect and analyze information at a scale and speed that was not possible just a few years ago.

Listeners will gain an understanding of:

  • How modern data systems are different from existing enterprise data stores
  • The primary considerations to be made prior to investing in a modern data platform
  • Industry-specific examples of big data benefits
  • The most common data mining skill gaps
