It’s a good day.  Our new book, Big Data for Dummies, is being released today and I’m busy working on a Big Data Analytics maturity model at TDWI with Krish Krishnan.  Krish, a faculty member at TDWI, is actually presenting some of the model at the TDWI World Conference:  Big Data Tipping Point taking place during the first week of May (see sidebar).  I would encourage people to attend, even if you aren’t that far along in your big data deployments.  TDWI has terrific courses in all aspects of information management and we understand that most companies will need to leverage their existing infrastructure to support big data initiatives.  In fact the title of this World conference is, “Preparing for the Practical Realities of Big Data.”   Check it out.

Back to the book.  Here’s a look at the Introduction!  Enjoy!
