Big Data is not about the size of the data,
it’s about the value within the data.
So, what is
value?
Market Intelligence?
Business Intelligence?
Secret Intelligence?
Our society is leaving
behind a digital footprint.
People are living online and we all are
expressing our attitudes, likes and
dislikes, our opinions and perspectives.
We are generating huge
amounts of data.
Data with a
lot of information.
… and a lot of noise.
The ability to hear the signal
from the noise is the key…
to unlocking the human conversation
that is taking place around us.
Listening to this
conversation
can lead us to…
Unexpected Discoveries
How do you
mine (and mind)
all this data?
Most people don’t know
what to do with all the data
that they already have…
Get Big
by starting
small
Focus on
Business Impact.
Big Data isn’t big,
if you know how to
use it.

Transcript of "What is big data?"

  1. 1. What is Big Data?
  2. 2. ... How big is BIG?
  3. 3. “Big Data is the frontier of a firm's ability to store, process, and access (SPA) all the data it needs to operate effectively, make decisions, reduce risks, and serve customers.” -- Forrester
  4. 4. “Big Data is the frontier of a firm's ability to store, process, and access (SPA) all the data it needs to operate effectively, make decisions, reduce risks, and serve customers.” -- Forrester
  5. 5. “Big Data in general is defined as high volume, velocity and variety information assets that demand cost- effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making.” -- Gartner
  6. 6. “Big Data in general is defined as high volume, velocity and variety information assets that demand cost- effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making.” -- Gartner
  7. 7. “Big data is data that exceeds the processing capacity of conventional database systems. The data is too big, moves too fast, or doesn't fit the strictures of your database architectures. To gain value from this data, you must choose an alternative way to process it.”-- O’Reilly
  8. 8. “Big data is data that exceeds the processing capacity of conventional database systems. The data is too big, moves too fast, or doesn't fit the strictures of your database architectures. To gain value from this data, you must choose an alternative way to process it.”-- O’Reilly
  9. 9. “Big data is the data characterized by 3 attributes: volume, variety and velocity.” -- IBM
