Big Data and Cloud Analytics Discussion

I sat down with my friend Patrick Morrissey this week to discuss the business intelligence market, Big Data and all things cloud. Pat runs marketing for a hot new company called Tidemark. This was a follow up to a discussion published on the Sandhill.com site: Enterprise Performance Management in the Cloud on an iPad.

Here are the questions he asked. You can read my answers here: Five for Friday – Darren Cunningham of Informatica Cloud.

  1. Analytics and business intelligence are top of mind for organizations today and Gartner says that BI is the #1 CIO priority in 2012.  Why is this such a hot button issue?
  2. If analytics are so critical to business success, why do so many projects fail?
  3. There is a lot of talk about “Big Data” in the press, blogs and industry events. How do you think about Big Data?
  4. Many larger organizations are now moving to “Cloud First” as their enterprise IT and application strategy.  How does cloud change the game?

Definitely some great questions – how did I do? Want to take a stab at answering them? What’s your POV?
