The Reclamation of Strategy

The Reclamation of Strategy | Big Data Analysis in the Clouds | Scoop.it

As has come evident, big data is one of the most important investments a brand can make. The stakes are huge — consulting and technology firm Capgemini has suggested that data can improve performance by 41 percent over a three-year period. Given the potential returns, what board would hesitate to sign off on a significant investment in big data?

But using big data to improve a business means more than just collecting the information, or even analyzing it — companies must develop a strategy for how to use the information to build their brands. Unfortunately, many firms are using big data tactically, rather than strategically. Marketers, in particular, are not realizing the full potential of big data —they’re mainly using it to drive programmatic advertising.

Leveraging Metadata for (Really) Big Data

Leveraging Metadata for (Really) Big Data | Big Data Analysis in the Clouds | Scoop.it
The word “metadata” has different meanings for different people. Most people think of this as the embodiment of big brother grabbing information about everything we do and say. More fundamentally, metadata is really data that describes other data.
