Full Description

In this time of decreasing margins, Big Data technology seems like a compelling way to optimize the development of unconventional resources – but, how is that technology leveraged effectively?  The technology companies often suggest just a matter of loading anything and everything into the Big Data platform and useful insights will magically appear – this is not the case.  This presentation will lay out a framework and roadmap for organizations to leverage Big Data platforms to enable the operational efficiencies required in today’s business environment.
