Principles

If you call on us to help guide your transition to using BigData, we stand by our (No) Big Bang Theory:

  • Re-use as much hardware as possible.
  • Make as few change to software and processes as possible.
  • Utilise existing staff, and upskill them.

 

THE (NO) BIG BANG THEORY OF CHANGE MANAGEMENT:

    Alephant has a (NO) Big Bang Theory of Change Management that looks to find the smoothest transition from an existing relational database system to a Big Data system, taking into account the impact on staff and systems as part of that change.
