‘Adapt or Die’ – Big Data is the Latest Cycle in Business Computing
Syncsort has been around a long time, and the company has witnessed the evolution of business computing first-hand. Perhaps more than most, we understand the ‘Adapt or Die’ mantra made famous by author and technology consultant, Geoffrey Moore.
In the following segment from his recent appearance on “The Cube” at Hadoop Summit 2012, Syncsort’s Mitch Seigle discusses this adapt or die concept not just at a business level, but in terms of how tried and true technology can be adapted to handle the Big Data challenges of today. As Mitch puts it, the technology strategy to meet Big Data demand “should not be seen as a means to an end, but an opportunity to provide the insight that will drive people to actionable business results.”
This post is the first in a series highlighting Syncsort’s Big Data perspective shared on The Cube. Check back next week for another installment and feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts.
