  • Francesco CoreaEmail author
Part of the Studies in Big Data book series (SBD, volume 50)


Big data is often approached as a mere technical problem, while many times projects fail because of lack of strategic focus. Implementing the right process may help companies to efficiently run analytics works and for this reason, the chapter proposes a few concepts that can support the organizational development of a big data blueprint. Three main ideas will be outlined here: the data lean approach, the maturity map, and different organization models for a data team.
