Many companies moving into or adopting Big Data technologies assume that the data management policies and practices in place for their transactional data and data warehousing will suffice for Big Data.
Unfortunately, as many have learned there are significant differences in the management of Big Data repositories, access, security and privacy, data quality, and other factors which are part of the typical data management and governance processes of transactional data stores. Additionally, the management of data for analytics, typically based on the data warehouse and Big Data, requires its own special approach to data management including its own data governance and organizational roles.
Challenges to successful management of Big Data and analytics include the sheer volume of data, the process of data preparation and transformation, the variability inherent in Big Data, and the expansion of data and analytics awareness throughout the organization.
There are also some significant changes in the way the organization deals with security and privacy in a big data and analytics environment.
