Knowing where and how to start with a big data project for any business is hard. Unprecedented data growth and the challenges of managing islands of storage, have organisations scrambling to figure out how to eliminate storage silos.

They are looking to find simpler ways to store and manage data, so they can focus efforts more toward gaining insights and value from their data.

However they aren't aware of how data storage management will create silos, similar to those that existed within the traditional infrastructures they are moving away from.

Dino Davanzo, Senior Manager, Enterprise Sales - EMC and Ned Shawa, Solutions Engineer APAC - Hortonworks, discuss the transformation of big data, the way it's stored and data in the era of IoT.
