Putting Big Data in Context

Putting Big Data in Context | 7wData | Scoop.it

While futurist Ray Kurweizel and Moore’s Law gets all the headlines, over the years there has been a lot of interesting research and creative thought given to the idea of technological innovation and its implications on the need for human involvement in complex decision-making. In the era of Big Data, when social networks capture our conversations, likes and ideas like never before and sensor networks, or the Internet of Things, indexes more of the world around us, the fastest systems have access to more of the raw fuel, in zettabytes of new data, needed to make increasingly more complex decisions. But, does that mean smart systems will soon replace human decision-making?

Yves Mulkers's insight:

a fine approach to show that big data doesn't solve all issues and some pitfalls are most definitely included as well. Take the best out of it and put it to play.

Big Data Is Not Data Warehousing

Big Data Is Not Data Warehousing | 7wData | Scoop.it

Big Data is not Data Warehousing, it is not the evolution of Data Warehousing and it is not a sensible and coherent alternative to Data Warehousing. No matter what certain vendors will put in their marketing brochures or stick up their noses. In spite of all of the high-visibility screw-ups that have carried the name of Data Warehousing, even when they were not Data Warehouse projects at all, the definition, strategy, benefits and success stories of data warehousing are known, they are in the public domain and they are tangible. Data Warehousing is a practical, rational and coherent way of providing information needed for strategic and tactical option-formulation and decision-making. Data Warehousing is a strategy driven, business oriented and technology based business process. We stock Data Warehouses with data that, in one way or another, comes from internal and optional external sources, and from structured and optional unstructured data. The process of getting data from a data source to the target Data Warehouse, involves extraction, scrubbing, transformation and loading, ETL for short.
