Chair’s opening remarks

Hiroshi Saijou

Moving beyond traditional manufacturing businesses: Building the future of Yamaha Motor

Partha Dutta
09:40

An inclusive approach for a Big Data and Analytics strategy

The volume, variety, and velocity (pun intended) with which computational algorithms, tools, platforms, services, etc. are being developed in the Big Data and Analytics space that it can be a challenge for a business to define a robust, if not the best, investment strategy. Making this choice is a business decision as well as a technology decision and one has to consider various granular issues in order to derive a good answer. This presentation will focus on the specific topic of the need for balancing between using existing off-the-shelf solutions and investing in exploratory works that are still in the incubation stage, and where a carefully constructed synergy between the two could achieve best results. A disclaimer is that the points made in this talk are drawn from the speaker’s personal experience of working in multiple industries and not specific to any organisation’s Big Data and Analytics strategy.
