I work for a bank – We are currently in the process of understanding how to handle/use the large volume of data we have in a smart way.
Came across this free Ebook called ” Getting Data Right Tackling The Challenges of Big Data Volume and Variety ” by Jerry Held, Michael Stonebraker, Thomas H. Davenport, Ihab Ilyas, Michael L. Brodie, Andy Palmer, and James Markarian that looks at some of the issues surrounding big data and our traditional systems.
From the book description “Use this book to learn about the fundamental challenges that Data Variety poses to enterprises looking to maximize the value of their existing investments—and how new approaches promise to help organizations embrace and leverage the fundamental diversity of data. Readers will also find best practices for designing bottom-up and probabilistic methods for finding and managing data; principles for doing data science at scale in the big data era; preparing and unifying data in ways that complement existing systems; optimizing data warehousing; and how to use “data ops” to automate large-scale integration. ”
