A Big Data Primer

Recently when I attended IDUG EMEA in Berlin, Germany, I stopped in the vendor hall to visit Susan Visser, who blogs about IBM Information Management, DB2, InfoSphere and data warehousing.

As I was checking out the DB2 books she had on display and for sale, Susan recommended a free book called “Harness the Power of Big Data." I've been researching Big Data lately, so I picked it up to read on the plane ride back to Chicago. I was so impressed I checked to see if this book was available online as a PDF. Sure enough, it is.

This is a must read for anyone who's interested in Big Data and IBM’s Big Data strategy. Download it, or if you prefer, purchase a hard copy.

If you've read this book, I'd be interested in your thoughts, as well as your company's response to Big Data and data analytics. Please post in Comments.
