  • Thank you Brian for that kind introduction.I am really pleased to be here to talk about Big Data and Strategic Alliances. While I have been working with Strategic Alliances since the early 1990’s, Big Data is, of course a new phenomenon. I began dealing with Big Data at exactEarth a few years ago where we built a satellite system that is today collecting 5-10 million messages a day from 85,000 ships worldwide.I’ll talk a little about that toward the end of my talk.But first, let’s look at the first assumption that I just made – namely, that Big Data is a new phenomenon.
  • Big Data has been with us for a long time – so why is it so hot now. That’s what we will examine tonight.I looked for something to capture the enthusiasm we see today for big data and I found this poemIt conveys the overwhelming sense of opportunity and challenge felt in the industry today.But… it was published in 1939!
  • It is the hot new fad! Right now.
  • Tonight I’ll talk about these things. At the end I’ll tell a story of how I have been dealing with these issues and opportunities over the past few year.First, where is all this big data coming from?
  • Where is it all coming from.?
  • These are QUALITATIVE changes. There are NEW kinds of data from NEW networks and NEW sources/operators of Applications
