Description

In my dissertation, I investigate how to engineer a method for realizing benefits from big data analytics projects. Big data analytics projects are complex and involve various elements, such as delivering the needed technology to capture, analyze, evaluate, and deploy data.

The intangible nature of what big data analytics projects essentially deliver, and how the organization expects to reap value from this adds to their complexity. Principally, big data analytics deliver an information statement in the form of, e.g., predictions or prescriptive analytics, to be consumed and acted upon in the organization, which might lead to value. Yet the latter depends upon several other factors, which I will present in the dissertation. The question of how big data analytics creates benefits has captured the attention of researchers within the field.
