Failure to Launch: From Big Data to Big Decisions
Not long ago, big data was all the rage, the trendiest concept in the world of business intelligence. Now, however, the hype appears to be fading fast, with few companies having realized the bottom-line benefits promised to them by various vendors from the undertaking of big data initiatives. One of the key drivers of this gap between promise and the reality has been the shortage of effective and adequate human resources in the organizations to undertake such efforts. This vacuum has resulted in minimal actions being taken on the wealth of information big data has made available for the organizations, a core driver behind the failure of tangible impact being realized.
