NEEDHAM, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) will be hosting a webinar on Thursday, July 31st at 11am ET to introduce the group’s latest whitepaper, “Deploying Big Data Analytics to the Cloud: Roadmap to Success”. The discussion will be led by IBM’s James Kobielus: a key author of the whitepaper who will offer guidance on how best to deploy new and existing Big Data analytics applications to the cloud.

Big Data is at the heart of many cloud service deployments. As private and public cloud deployments become more prevalent, it will be critical for end-user organizations to have a clear understanding of Big Data application requirements, tool capabilities, and best practices for implementation. The primary focus of CSCC’s whitepaper is to provide guidance to cloud service customer organizations in all industries on how best to deploy new and existing Big Data analytics applications to the cloud.

The paper highlights key considerations that users should follow in order to ensure successful deployment. Key steps to be discussed include:

1. Build the business case for Big Data in the cloud
2. Assess your Big Data application workloads for deployment into the cloud
3. Develop a technical approach for deploying and managing Big Data in the cloud
4. Address governance, security, privacy, risk, and accountability requirements
5. Deploy, integrate, and operationalize your cloud-based Big Data infrastructure
