It is clear that the business side of organizations see many tangible benefits in 'thriving on data': making real use of an abundance of internal and external data to improve results and drive change. With this, the concept of 'Big Data' seems to have become the common denominator for everything innovative around data and information management. The question however is what 'Big' exactly means: is it 'Big' as in 'Obese' or as in 'Size', 'Speed', 'Impact' or 'Importance'? Understanding 'How Big' Data really is, points us to the actual business change drivers. And once we have identified business change drivers, we start to understand what architectural patterns come into play to enable the change. After all: architecture is all about making change happen. Join us in exploring a few of the most typical architectural strategies in Business Information Management and get your hands around all that Big Data.
