Allowing businesses to use data

Big Data as defined by Hadoop has failed to deliver business benefits. Hopefully, this will be the last time that business leaders and managers will hand over the IT budget to the IT department which tells them they have a silver bullet solution. They and the data scientists are responsible for squandering inordinate amounts of money on a solution that even common sense would tell you was never going to deliver repeatable results or business value. Fortunately, advances have been made which have produced software which is capable of storing large amounts of data, getting it to the right place, at the right time and allowing analytics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence work to be undertaken by people who are not from the ranks of the extremely technical division of IT technologists. Also, current technology allows data lineage to be effectively and automatically mapped and controlled. This presentation is about a data platform that will allow businesses to use their data to do all these things without handing control to IT functions, that by definition, could never share their business objectives.
