How UPS Uses Analytics to Drive Down Costs (and No, it Doesn’t Call it Big Data)

How UPS Uses Analytics to Drive Down Costs (and No, it Doesn’t Call it Big Data) | big data | Scoop.it
When you have an organization the size of UPS, every single little bit of efficiency that can be squeezed out of daily operations translates into a big deal.
Philippe Andre's insight:
 Big data is the how, Bid impact is the What. I like this approach which contrasts with the discussions on the technologies to be used before defining objectives and clear targets. Here, we have  large volumes of data + algorithmic mathematical complexity very difficult to solve within acceptable time if we do not think the business rules (mathematical model) and at the same time how to implement it.

Oracle: SQL Best For Big Data Analysis - InformationWeek

Oracle: SQL Best For Big Data Analysis - InformationWeek | big data | Scoop.it
Oracle admits there's a place for Hadoop and NoSQL, but it's sticking with its relational-database-centric view of big data opportunity.
Philippe Andre's insight:

Oracle does not talk about scale-out. What can do Hadoop or NoSQL systems  ... or SQL parallel data (an example being the open source postgre-XL product). Oracle Exadata and Exalogic offers based hardware and software appliance, which is very similar by some aspects to a mainframe approach to the problem, and "incidental" does not meet the needs of distribution and parallelization of processing in highly distributed environments

Big Data Analytics Yields Better Decisions About Cancer Care

Big Data Analytics Yields Better Decisions About Cancer Care | big data | Scoop.it
Analytics and IBM infrastructure help Caris Life Sciences improve the speed and quality of recommendations it delivers to oncologists on the front lines of cancer care.
Philippe Andre's insight:

Another article stating that processing large amounts of data provides better decisions. Okay, but it remains to prove that the decisions made from data provided lead doctors to better treatments and thus ultimately more patients heal (or with a greater life expectancy) thanks to this, compared to decisions let say "more traditional." We do not of course a lot of hindsight, but this type of research needs to be done because beyond to advertise a particular business, it is the ultimate goal we are interested ... at least I hope so.
