Dear Readers,

With Ganesh Chaturthi around the corner, we are marking the start of the Indian festive season. In Mumbai, this festival is known to bring people of all religion, caste and creed together. While our city administrators are getting concerned about traffic management, CIOs and IT decision makers are trying to cope with another type of traffic - the traffic of data that flows in and out of their organizations.

With IoT, everyday objects are connected to the internet to send and receive data they pick up through a network of sensors. According to a recent survey of 316 senior data and IT executives conducted by Forbes, Big Data initiatives are reshaping the world. With or without the right strategy, big data is forever changing the way organizations behave. This has brought opportunities to drive revenue, connect with customers and develop new products. This surge in data is also the reason for a boom in the adoption of big data technologies. However, organizations have been slow in adopting technologies to make use of Big Data.

The problem doesn’t lie in adoption of technology, but in an organization’s culture. That culture starts with the C-suite and it must gradually trickle down to the entire organization.

This season, make the best of technology to manage your traffic.

Happy festivities!

Sincerely,

Signature

Why You Must Know about Big Data

A few years ago, we came across clients talking about open source as a separate topic unto itself, and it slowly merged into standard operating procedure for any business. ‘Big Data’ is witnessing the same cycle today. We’re getting to a stage where 'Big Data' is not being treated as an isolated topic but a standard business procedure.

Managing your data is essential most business processes today. Data is now woven into every sector and function in areas like customer service, HR, Marketing, Accounts and every imaginable department. 'Big Data' isn’t a distinct step that a company should take, but simply a way of describing the large volume of data that moves in and out of your organization. Enterprises must urge employees to make data a priority, share data sets across departments and assume shared responsibility for data collection, quality and analysis. With a large volume of data flowing from your organization, you must also ensure that you are protecting your data with the right technologies. The 'Big Data' revolution has already started – make sure your organization is ahead and well equipped to handle a tornado of precious information!

Expert Tips
Despite the buzz around Big Data and the value it brings, most companies do not take full advantage of information they already hold within their organization. They often wonder where to start from. All businesses interact with their customers, and that's the best place to begin with. Take a look at your existing data and look for ways to pivot it to be around the customer.
