Eight (No, Nine!) Problems With Big Data

Eight (No, Nine!) Problems With Big Data | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

BIG data is suddenly everywhere. Everyone seems to be collecting it, analyzing it, making money from it and celebrating (or fearing) its powers. Whether we’re talking about analyzing zillions of Google search queries to predict flu outbreaks, or zillions of phone records to detect signs of terrorist activity, or zillions of airline stats to find the best time to buy plane tickets, big data is on the case. By combining the power of modern computing with the plentiful data of the digital era, it promises to solve virtually any problem — crime, public health, the evolution of grammar, the perils of dating — just by crunching the numbers.

Remember people learn from you in 3 ways, audibly, visually and kinaesthetically. Which is why what you do with your body including your face is also so critical. 

Dave Wood's curator insight, March 14, 3:58 PM

The first 2 sentences of this article sum it all up:

"On average, your readers will only read 28% of the words on a page.

Can you tell your whole story in 2-3 sentences? Probably not."

 

As graphic/visual coaches this reinforces the value of recording and working through visuals to support and enhance  the normal  talking and  note taking.

How to Get Over Your Inaction on Big Data

How to Get Over Your Inaction on Big Data | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

For every Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, and Google, there are still thousands of midsized and large organizations that are doing nothing with big data beyond giving it lip service.

 

One big barrier to implementation is the incessant noise around big data from consultants, vendors, and the media. The din leaves many, if not most, CXOs confused and intimidated. They wonder: Do we start small or large? Is big data just another IT project that can be run by a unit head? And what’s the ROI going to be, anyway?

5 shifts that will shape the future of IT

5 shifts that will shape the future of IT | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

What’s the role of IT in business?

 

How can the entire business consume and manage IT in a safe and compliant way while still meeting the needs of today’s empower customers?

 

To answer this question we need insight into who will make the decisions on what IT will be used where and how it will be knitted together. We need some understanding of the drivers behind the current transition in how we consume IT in business.

  • Driver 1: Enterprise IT is no longer an infrastructure problem, it’s not an asset we own
  • Driver 2: Consumer trends drive enterprise IT, rather than enterprise IT driving consumer trends
  • Driver 3: The old core IT skills are not as valuable as they used to be
  • Driver 4: How we define the value of IT has expanded (it’s a lot more than ROI now)
  • Driver 5: External obligations – such as financial reporting, anti money-laundering and counter terrorism financing – will trigger the transition to new operating models

The Dark Side of the | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
The "smart city" is a futurist's dream town. It's carbon neutral because computers regulate its energy use perfectly. It has no traffic jams because sensors capture real-time data on the roads and guide drivers to optimal routes. Other sensors can quickly alert police to crime, or send information to your mobile about cool events. But living in a smart city could be a nightmare.

Unlocking the Internet of Things

Unlocking the Internet of Things | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it

Storms of new data are growing bigger by the day, flowing in from social media, new internal corporate processes, retail and market transactions, electronic sensors and other machines. Especially machines.

 

The masses of new data follow technology innovation and by 2020 industry analysts predict there will be up to 30 billion devices connected to the Internet with unique IP addresses. This compares with 2009, when were a ‘mere’ 2.5 billion connected devices.

 

But what are we meant to do with the Things of the Internet? The amounts of data being created are so large that they are measured in quintillions of bytes – 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data are created every day.
