Remember big data? Big data was introduced way back in 2005. It was intended to describe the harnessing of critical information from disparate systems and situating that information into one place for analysis. It was the sort of innocuous term that seemed like nothing more than the latest buzzword we could all ignore. Do you want the truth? Many small companies did just that. They gave the concept of big data the cold shoulder. To…

I’m working on a market study of the system integrators (SIs) who implement warehouse management systems (WMS). I was under the impression that software suppliers write the software, and either SIs or/and the software company implement the software. It’s not that simple. Sometimes the system integrators write software that complements the WMS solutions that they implement. These SIs have learned the weaknesses in various systems and have written complementary applications to close the gaps. One…

The difference in voter sentiment is significant because while a strong negative sentiment may not result in a large shift, it can be a strong indicator that some voters will change sides while…

Enterprises today are capturing huge volumes of varied data at a very fast pace. According to an IDC report, “The volume of data stored in the Global StorageSphere is doubling approximately every four years.” But unfortunately, most of the data that is captured and stored is not being used, and this data that is not used is known as “dark” or “dusty” data. Research advisory firm Gartner says dark data is “the information assets organizations collect, process and…

We have more information about our own lives and the world around us than ever before. But how are we using that data? And when there’s so much information to keep track of, how do we choose what to study and capture the most important insights? Big data is a phrase for technology that collects and analyzes huge amounts of data, on any topic that can be measured — like health, business, or transit. The technology…

The term “big data” first emerged fifteen years ago to put a name to the increasingly large, diverse, and complex volumes of data that could not be easily managed by traditional data management practices. In recent years, as digital transformation picked up steam, big data has emerged as a primary fuel for the journey. “The ability to analyze vast amounts of structured and unstructured data to gain insights, often in real-time, is what underpins most digital transformation efforts,…
