Trust your data before you act
Combining untrusted external information with data from trusted internal systems can lead to more questions than answers. What data is correct? Do we have the right context to make the best decision? Are we confident enough to act on this insight?
To get started and be successful with big data, you need more than speed-of-thought analytics and the simplicity of an appliance. You also need a sound basis for confidence in your data. When IBM asked business and IT professionals in 95 countries about the current state of their infrastructures, “almost two-thirds report[ed] starting their big data journeys with an information foundation that is integrated, scalable, extensible and secure.”*
