This report explains the benefits that Hadoop and Hadoop-based products can bring to organizations today, both for big data analytics and as complements to existing BI and data warehousing technologies based on TDWI research plus survey responses from 325 data management professionals across 13 industries. It also covers Hadoop best practices and provides an overview of tools and platforms that integrate with Hadoop.
Although the phrase “next-generation platforms and analytics” can evoke images of machine learning, big data, Hadoop, and the Internet of things, most organizations are somewhere in between the technology vision and today’s reality of BI and dashboards. Next-generation platforms and analytics often mean simply pushing past reports and dashboards to more advanced forms of analytics, such as predictive analytics. Next-generation analytics might move your organization from visualization to big data visualization; from slicing and dicing data to predictive analytics; or to using more than just structured data for analysis.
If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data – one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in today’s on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.
SAS® Visual Analytics is a data visualization and business
intelligence solution that uses intelligent autocharting to help

Big data evolution: forging new corporate capabilities for the long term is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by SAS. It explores how far along companies are on their data journey and how they can best exploit the massive amounts of data they are collecting.
How does marketing compare to a game of pool? Sometimes you hit a good shot – 9 ball corner pocket – like when you’ve marketed a product and your customer purchases it. But sometimes your shot misses, and you knock in your opponent’s ball. You could even knock your ball into the pocket, but mistakenly knock your opponent’s ball into a different pocket at the same time.
Of course, you can’t predict everything in a game of pool – or in
marketing. A campaign may reveal a weakness that sends
customers scuttling to a competitor. A new product can
cannibalize an existing product line. Customers could leave one
of your legacy product lines to consume one of your newly
launched products – perhaps causing you to lose some
But unlike pool, it’s hard to observe and measure with the naked eye what’s happening in marketing. The way to improve your chances of success is to build a solid measurement plan that lets you define and measure diagnostic metrics.
This whitepaper examines some of the short- and long-term issues and challenges that should be part of your due diligence when facing growing demands of your organization’s evolving computing architecture and making major strategic and economic decisions.
