Build your bridge to big data — a bundle of new resources (Part 1)

If you’re looking for ways to squeeze maximum value from your data and deliver high-impact, real-time successes, you’re surely investigating big data technologies. At HP Discover 2013, we announced a massive expansion of our big data portfolio designed to empower forward-looking organizations like yours, including a cluster of new services to help you prepare your infrastructure and dodge the potential setbacks. If you missed the Discover sessions and announcements, no worries – we’ll be posting all the info you need at this blog in the coming weeks.


Best place to start is this snapshot of our new services, from Stuart Rance’s post Turning Big Data Strategy Into Reality:

  • HP Big Data Architecture and Strategy Services. We can help you develop an integrated IT strategy to capture, consolidate and manage the business-aligned information that keeps IT relevant. The new HP Big Data Infrastructure Transformation Experience Workshop joins our newly updated HP Roadmap Service for Hadoop to bring you powerful tools to build your big data vision.
  • HP Big Data System Infrastructure Services. With these new offerings, HP can help your organization navigate the complexities of Hadoop design and implementation by constructing a detailed plan that considers your deployment goals, and supports enterprise growth. The three services in this group are: HP Enterprise Design for Hadoop, HP Reference Architecture Implementation for Hadoop, and HP Implementation Service for Hadoop.
  • HP Big Data Protection Services. Our new Big Data Protection and Compliance Analysis helps you identify potential risks and achieve compliance with government and industry data security requirements.

(You can read more about these services in our brochure Transform IT for Big Data.)


Stuart was at Discover, talking about how IT creates value for the business and how big data creates fresh opportunities. Check out the session he presented together with HP Global Consulting Strategist Angela Chin, titled “Big data as an enabler for strategic services.”



Regular readers of this blog will need no introduction to another HP big data authority, Amos Ferrari (see the list of selected posts, below). Amos wasn’t able to make it to Discover, but you can catch his latest thinking on big data architecture in the session slides presented on his behalf by Donald Livengood, titled “Intelligent Data Center Infrastructure: Big Data IT Transformation.” The session included an overview of a big data infrastructure functional architecture and examples of IT infrastructures that will enable the data center of the future.
