Big Data Bigger Flops – Lessons Learned from Big Data Projects

Natalie has been an analyst and designer on multiple big data projects — some successful and some not. In this talk, she’ll take a trip down memory lane on some of the NOT-so-successful projects, exploring her past learning experiences and discussing what she’s found is needed to make big data projects successful — and things to avoid. We’ll discuss visionary goals, prioritization, architecture, build versus buy, and how to educate the rest of your team on big data concepts.
