Big data transformation is a journey - that’s why Capgemini’s approach is pragmatic. Think big start little. Start with identifying quick wins in terms of short term business value or infrastructure and then build the vision of the target architecture. Based on our experience with Big Data implementation projects, Capgemini can help you define the way forward, and how to derive business benefits quickly from your first implementations. Through our partnership with Cloudera, we can deliver on our promises. We bring the right skills to your organization and work collaboratively to deliver analytics in an agile, high-performing, cost-efficient way.
