How do I start a business in cloud computing and big data?
I want to start a business in big data & cloud because as we already know that it is very much required in small & big businesses. I want to provide a platform to the companies, industries, factories etc. that saves huge amounts of data at a low cost and in efficient time. How do I get started?
START. Massive ACTION is the key to success. You ARE great, and the fact that you are asking "how" is proof positive, but you MUST start where you are and with what you have. Create your website, start going to networking events [note: people will not do business with someone they don't know], talk to as many business owners and leaders as you can, ask as many questions as you can, and keep your VISION always in MIND. You're going to do great. Never give up!
How would you get started in big data?
You either need to have engineers and tools in-house, or you need to find a consultancy or firm that specializes in it. The latter can come in and help you get it set up and get you started, which is a good route.
There are some off the shelf platforms that can give you some insight, like GoodData and Tableau, where you can plug in the data sets that you have for a monthly fee. Their dashboarding functionalities help non-technical users to create charts and graphs and to look for trends to analyze.
We at Top10 choose GoodData and have been using it for the last 2 years!
Information that is in the cloud can be much more easily moved between sources, shared and accessed, and it is a major trend within the cloud computing industry to help customers with these connects. All-in-all, you should move to the cloud "yesterday".
