Quality decision making requires meaningful, reliable information. But does "big data" always meet those requirements?
Algorithms and software programs are designed to mine data into information gold, but questions about their effectiveness, the source and quality of the data, and additional and frequently hidden costs, can make the payback on big data prohibitive.
The central question remains – does big data really help you improve decision making?
Join JD Solomon to evaluate data collection, analytical tools, statistical approaches, and converting information into quality decisions. You'll learn how to improve diagnostics and forecasting using big data and also examine several case studies ranging from ecosystems in the natural environment to transportation and utility systems in the built environment.
