BrandPost: Distributed Analytics: Enabling More Insightful Solutions

At the recent Intel Analytics Summit, our first panel discussion featured a conversation on distributed analytics.

This panel offered a lively look at topics that are close to the heart of anyone focused on extracting value from big data. While the topics were wide-ranging — from foundational technologies to applications like machine learning, the centerpiece of the discussion was a deep dive into the advantages of distributed analytics.So what is distributed analytics? At the most basic level, distributed analytics spreads data analysis workloads over multiple nodes in a cluster of servers, rather than asking a single node to tackle a big problem.

IDG Contributor Network: Thinking twice: Data science or MBA?

Therersquo;s no doubt that data-driven decision-making has become increasingly popular and profitable.

Big data helps organizations amass operational insights that assist them in making strategic decisions quickly and more effectively.
