Scalable Analytics Without Intermediation (Can it exist? When?)

The cost of an insight is a function of the data volume, schema complexity and development cycles. The promise of the NoSQL movement was to reduce the barriers to the end users so that the analysis could occur in their hands across all the data. We will ask can a fast, robust and iterative analysis of Big Data exist? Can we generate and test insights? How much of BigData data discovery has been solved and how much more remains?
