It’s no secret that big data is engulfing society at large. A recent survey of senior level IT professionals by CIO Insight, found that 90% of respondents said their organizations were investing in big data and analytics. So, what do these results really mean? It means that companies in all sectors are finding value in being data-driven.
This week at Talend Connect we introduced our first annual Talend Data Masters Awards to recognize forward-thinking, data-driven organizations around the globe that are doing incredible things with their data. Winners were selected based on their usage of big data technology, creativity and overall business value achieved.
