Big data and business intelligence are transforming businesses. Together, they are improving operations and enabling organizations to make better decisions, faster. Organizations that can glean new insights from business intelligence will be able to seize opportunities and solve critical challenges, keeping them a step ahead of the competition.
The intersection of data discovery, content analytics and search is improving context, visibility and agility around data to better meet the needs of today's users.

Attivio was in great company, joined by other heavy hitters such as MapR, Tableau, and Cloudera-we were in a perpetual sea of data expertise.

Recently Attivio had an internal workshop to discuss and hack on the question of ingestion - why it is sometimes very challenging, especially at scale and in complex, multi-datacenter environments. This post is a summary of that discussion.
