"This is all about speed. Speed in terms of data, speed in terms of application agility."

With all the hype around Big Data, we’ve become extremely proficient at collecting data – be it from enterprise systems, documents, social interactions, or e-mail and collaboration services. The expanding smorgasbord of data collection points are turning increasingly portable and personal, including mobile phones and wearable sensors, resulting in a data mining gold rush that will soon have companies and organizations accruing Yottabytes (10^24) of data.

Pierre Levy's insight:

So it’s great that applications out there can gather and analyze data, detect human-based meaning from it, and visualize it all, but any application is limiting itself if it is only useful once you open the application and enter a query. We wanted to go beyond this. That’s why we decided to get contextual on you and increase our technology’s reach. We go beyond contextual data by developing contextual applications – we wanted to put data to good use by applying it to real-life situations in our daily lives.
