A Big Data Analytics Methodology Program in the Health Sector
Lawler, James; Joseph, Anthony; Howell-Barber, H.
Information Systems Education Journal, v14 n3 p63-75 May 2016
The benefits of Big Data Analytics are cited frequently in the literature. However, the difficulties of implementing Big Data Analytics can limit the number of organizational projects. In this study, the authors evaluate business, procedural and technical factors in the implementation of Big Data Analytics, applying a methodology program. Focusing on organizations in the health sector, the authors learn that business and procedural factors are collectively more critical than factors of technology in managing Big Data Analytics projects that attempt to contribute discernible impact; and they further learn that managing for practical results than for strategy is more evident on the projects in the sector. The study will benefit educators in improving Big Data Analytics curricula with a methodology program and will benefit practitioners in the sector in initiating systems.
