September 24, 2014 — Everyone is talking about it, some understand it, few know how to use it and almost no one knows what to do with the data that they mine. Answers may be found in a paper published by Knowledge Integrity (www.progress.com), which is titled “Addressing Five Emerging Challenges of Big Data.”
At least it brings to the forefront some of the issues with big data. It looks at a number of metrics big data challenges wheelhouse. Such as the unknowns of the big data management landscape, what is state of the talent pool, how to get the data into the Big Data Platform, and how to get useful information out of the big data platform.
Big data is an interesting new paradigm. I have people telling me they just got something from a database that they were part of 30 years ago. Not even a peep, now somehow, this entity tracked them down after all that time.
