Big Data: Big Business Opportunities

How can companies leverage the concepts of Big Data in order to identify business opportunities, mitigate risk, increase and enhance business operations and logistics, and optimize operational efficiencies? The answer: Big Data.

Why does Big Data matter to you?

Companies generate more information on a daily basis than they are even likely aware of. Whether this is captured in system log information, web traffic and usage pattern information, or security audits, information within the enterprise already exists. But to date, obtaining this information, combining it with information from other sources (including external data sources), and then performing data analytics on the aggregate whole has been a daunting, if not impossible task. IBM has been working on providing solutions to help companies tackle this challenge (see IBM's Big Data website) as part of it's Smarter Planet initiative: afterall, the only way you can have a smarter planet is to be smarter in how you handle (and process) your data.
