Following the big data released by the local Government and promotion of big IT giants, ‘Big Data’ has become a buzzword around us every day. Even though we don’t participate this kind of projects, we may be influenced or enjoying the results to which we don’t know. Major business stakeholders have already transformed their business models or decision making processes with respect to the Big Data analytics. Big Data projects become more powerful upon integration with other technologies like cloud computing, IoT and Business Intelligence, etc.

Big Data is actually a collection of framework, which creates opportunities for us to deliver better tools, services and products. It’s unnecessary to take the comprehensive solutions proposed by the large IT firms; there are many entrance points for SME and entrepreneurs to start business with reasonable investment and non-IT background. Managing Big Data project is quite different from traditional one. The organization should be more forward looking and flexibly manage the stakeholders and issues arise.
This class helps project stakeholders to:

  • Define big data project
  • Explore big data problems and issues
  • Explore application area of big data
  • Maximize project outcomes from related tools or technologies
  • Minimize investment from effective use of resources
  • Identify integration solution with other technologies
  • Manage this kind of project differently, e.g. lifecycle, project team, etc.

Target audiences

  • People who want to have basic information and solution of the Big Data project
  • People who want to create new ideas or opportunities in related area
  • People who prepare to participate such kind of project, and speak the same language
