Q: How do you create a big data strategy?
A: Understand your business vision and goals. Create a strategy for the data hoard as a part of your data architecture. This should be a part of your annual or periodic Enterprise Architecture review, or perhaps a “spring cleaning” project to address the hoarding. What does your data contain that yields value? This is not just an IT decision about what can be offered, but a discussion with the business—marketing, sales, manufacturing, order fulfillment, and any organization that can potentially benefit from the hoard. This is an important dialogue between the business and IT, resulting in an executable strategy. IT brings data to the table, business brings its goals and needs.
