The path to competitive advantage is being able to make predictions from Big Data. Therefore, the more you can build predictive analytics into your business processes, the more data driven and successful your organization will become. Organizations must first identify ripe use cases for Big Data and build out a roadmap for business transformation. Organizations must then take a low risk, best-of-breed approach to quickly transform from a rigid, siloed infrastructure to modern, agile one. In addition to technology, organizations must develop the skills and organizational processes necessary to adopt Big Data and become data-driven.
