Organizations Struggle with Data Overloads, Technology Maturity

Despite all the attention paid to big data and data management, many organizations continue to struggle with getting full value from their data assets. At the recent Strata & Hadoop World conference in New York, Information Management spoke with Joe Goldberg, innovation evangelist at BMC, about what the greatest challenges are.

Information Management: What are the most common themes that you heard from attendees this year?

Joe Goldberg: A large percentage of attendees are still exploring big data and Hadoop technology with the intent to modernize their data management infrastructure. All have existing investment in traditional enterprise data warehouse solutions, and are studying how they can expand or replace those assets to deal with the deluge of data they are anticipating from emerging new sources as well as significant volume growth from existing sources. This trend has been one of the primary drivers we have seen evolving from the very beginning of our involvement in this market over three years ago.
