Several months ago, I was talking to some CIOs about their business problems. During these conversations, I asked them about their interest in Big Data. One sophisticated CIO recoiled almost immediately saying that he believes most vendors are really having a problem discussing “Big Data” with customers like him. It would just be so much easier if you guys would talk to me about helping my company with our structured data and unstructured data. At the same time, Gartner has found that 64% of enterprises surveyed say they’re deploying or planning to deploy a Big Data project.
