How to make big data self-service for your users

Notable Quote: (Kelly Stirman of Dremio): “Companies have huge, huge amounts of data, but it’s spread across many different systems, and it seems like, for decades, the answer to the problem was, “Hey, just move all your data into a new silo,” but you just never finish, and the next silo pops up. The idea was we have data consumers in companies, the BI users, data scientists, executives who make data essential to their daily lives and how they get their jobs done, but getting access to the data means they have to get into what I’ll call a data breadline, where they’re waiting their turn to get from IT the things that they need.”
