Why Education/Services For Big Data?
To gain value from Big Data, it is important to have the people and processes in place to identify and execute on optimal use cases that utilize Big Data analytics to solve business problems. This may require training staff in Big Data Analytics and Data Science and to seek experienced, outside resources to help deliver results.
EMC Big Data Curriculum are online and in person EMC Education Courses for IT, Business Leaders, Data Scientists to gain the skills needed to effectively identify Big Data opportunities, execute on projects, and create a data-driven culture company-wide.
Watch an excellent talk at EMC World about many of the elements that people need to consider as they build data science teams and architect this capability within an organization. The session focused on these 4 main areas:
Data Science Team. The roles and competencies required for a high-performing data science team.
Developing Data Science Capabilities. Deciding which model to choose for developing data science capabilities, because not everyone needs to build their own team. In other words, you should consider whether it is best to transform an existing team, build a brand new one, outsource, or crowdsource specific data science problems.
Organizational Model. Organizations may choose to have a centralized data science team, a de-centralized one, or take a hybrid approach. The key is to understand the trade-offs of each path and be thoughtful in the path you pursue.
Executive Engagement. Getting executive engagement and support is critical. This is what separates a company with localized analytical teams from another that uses analytics to really inform its strategy. Think of Netflix, Amazon, or the Oakland A’s (Moneyball) in this latter category.
