Big Data vs. Bad Data

Big Data vs. Bad Data | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
 This is the elephant in the Big Data room….How much “Bad Data” is out there?Wait a minute, I hear you say, do you mean to say that not all of this data is accurate? What is the point of salivating over terabytes of Big Data if we don’t understand which bits are inaccurate, duplicated, incorrect or incomplete?That is the right question to be asking.The consequences of cyber attacks are well documented, but actually, in a world that is increasingly reliant on our data, the costs of Bad Data could be even higher.

Why Big Data didn’t help Tesco

Why Big Data didn’t help Tesco | Asset Management Engineering | Scoop.it
In the last six months of so there has been much commentary about Tesco’s difficulties, including a number of posts by me. One of the questions I have been asked many times since is “Why didn’t ClubCard (Tesco’s loyalty card scheme) data warn them? Why didn’t big data help? Surely a retailer as sophisticated as Tesco would be able to read its big data to notice that there are some worrying trends that need addressing? The fact that apparently vast quantities of big data were not able to keep Tesco from a truly alarming fall from grace, contains lessons for us all

How Poor Data Governance Can Destroy Business Performance – Part 1

"The current economic climate is putting companies under more stress than they have experienced in quite some time. The economic downturn is forcing executives to sharpen their pencils, look for profit and eradicate losses in every nook and cranny of the organisation, and make hard decisions about where to allocate scarce resources. Geopolitical uncertainty makes planning and modelling at once harder and more important than ever before. And new reporting rules have companies scrambling for faster, yet more detailed, information about results and performance so that they can report their

On a hot sweltering day in Lincoln, Nebraska in July of 1990 I delivered my first predictive model.Working on a contract basis for Metromail (acquired by Experian), I analyzed the performance of about half dozen recent mailings for a non-profit to predict the characteristics of best donors.I used demographics like age, income, home value, history of donations and created a linear regression model. The top decile (we group data into equal ten percent, each is called a decile) was yielding a theoretical 7% response rate, and the bottom about 0.5%. Everything looked good, and I presented the res

The alchemy of turning data to gold

We have been told that our data is a gold mine, and many have invested accordingly. – And still, many executives feel empty-handed (and empty-pocketed as well). But why?Well, it shouldn’t come as a surprise as man throughout history has coveted the ability to turn things into gold – the Midas touch. Medieval alchemists were convinced they could turn lead into gold. Even in modern times there are examples of serious believers (such as the German leadership during WWII which seriously tried to turn sand into gold).Today’s business alchemy challenge is the ability to turn
