Product guru Jeff Hassemer shares his (not-so) kumbaya moments of how he learned about the principles of agile within big data projects—in action. Jeff describes practical tools specifically focused on customer ROI valuation and developing the science behind embedding customer knowledge and prioritization. In addition, he shares the lessons he learned along the way as he implemented his first Hadoop/HBase project. Learn the key aspects of the process and practical tools he created and how you, too, can deploy big data within your organization.
