When we launched our new website, and with it, brought the Massive Data Revolution to light, it became clear by the responses that this revolution had struck a chord.

Maybe it’s because data has grown to such massive proportions that the gap between legacy systems’ capabilities and the modern-day analytical needs of organizations has become too big to ignore. Or maybe it’s because 2020, the particularly rough year that it has been, brought out the revolutionary spirit in all of us. Either way, it became clear that the data people have had it.

Big Data has long-since become an obsolete buzzword unfit to describe the massive volumes that have taken organizations by storm. And with all the business potential this growth brings, data practitioners are expected to deliver on a big promise with analytics tools that were designed for a previous era of data. Analysts dealing with terabytes and petabytes of data find themselves waiting hours and days on complex SQL queries, and spend even longer on data preparation. Business stakeholders don’t understand why they can’t get the reports they need, and critical insights go undiscovered.

After hearing the same frustrations from practitioners across the data pipeline, we decided it’s time to shake up the conversation, and we’re challenging YOU to take part.
