There’s Gold in Them Thar Servers

New Scientist reviews the latest Big Data book released called “Big Data: A revolution that will transform how we live, work and think“.  Although I believe that there are plenty of major business opportunities in this approach lately termed “Big Data”, I think some are overhyping and overdramatising its impacts on society in general.  Data is still messy and patchy in many parts of the world. So, although there will be many clever exploitations, it is still opportunistic at the moment and, at least, will remain so in the near term.  The all seeing Big Brother and all-powerful Marketing Analyst is certainly closer than thought possible just 10 years ago, but it is coming in an evolutionary rather than revolutionary pace.

Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Appreciate it!

You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be really something which I think I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely wide for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your next put up, I will try to get the cling of it!
