Big Data Exploration
What is the Big Data Exploration use case?
Big data exploration addresses the challenge faced by every large organization: business information is spread across multiple systems and silos and people need access to that data to meet their job requirements and make important decisions. Big Data Exploration enables you to explore and mine big data to find, visualize, and understand all your data to improve decision making. By creating a unified view of information across all data sources - both inside and outside of your organization - you gain enhanced value and new insights.
Are you struggling to manage and extract value from the growing volume and variety of data and need to unify information across federated sources?
Are you unable to relate “raw” data collected from system logs, sensors, or click streams with customer and line-of-business data managed in your enterprise systems?
Do you risk exposing unsecure personal information and/or privileged data due to lack of information awareness?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, the big data exploration use case is the best starting point for your big data journey.
