When it comes to your organization's big data architecture, is it better to build or buy? You should start your quest by putting aside all the marketing mumjo-jumbo and defining what big data really means for your organization. From there, CIOs and IT leaders need to look hard at their operational requirements, their technical wish lists and, as always, the bottom line.
Join SearchCIO Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 3 p.m. EDT to discuss the basics behind a big data architecture and whether buying, building or even blending is right for your enterprise. We'll discuss market changes in the big data sphere, the technical requirements CIOs should consider before investing in new architecture, the advantages and disadvantages of building vs. buying, and where hybrid options might make sense.
SearchCIO site editors will lead the event from SearchCIO's Twitter handle, @SearchCIO, joined by other TechTarget editors, writers and experts. Join us, tell us about your big data architecture experience and bring your burning big data questions for us and other participants.
