Data Brokers Are Watching You

Data Brokers Are Watching You | Big Data - Visual Analytics | Scoop.it

You would be surprised by how much Data Brokers know about you, and what they are doing with your information.

Andreas Maniatis's insight:

Aided by advances in data science and the increased digitization of analog information, an industry little known to the public is quietly compiling comprehensive dossiers on millions of Americans (and others). These companies, called data brokers, say they operate within the law, but the unprecedented breadth and depth of the data files, the difficulty in correcting erroneous data, and the potential for abuse of personal information are raising alarms from privacy advocates, consumer groups, and government officials.

Big Data: The Management Revolution - HBR

Big Data: The Management Revolution - HBR | Big Data - Visual Analytics | Scoop.it
Exploiting vast new flows of information can radically improve your company’s performance. But first you’ll have to change your decision-making culture.
Andreas Maniatis's insight:

More "Oldies but Goodies" from the HBR:

"You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”.

There’s much wisdom in that saying, which has been attributed to both W. Edwards Deming and Peter Drucker, and it explains why the recent explosion of digital data is so important. Simply put, because of big data, managers can measure, and hence know, radically more about their businesses, and directly translate that knowledge into improved decision making and performance.

The Beckman Report on Database Research

The Beckman Report on Database Research | Big Data - Visual Analytics | Scoop.it

Every few years a group of database researchers meets to discuss the state of database research, its impact on practice, and important new directions.

Andreas Maniatis's insight:

This report summarizes the discussion and conclusions of the eighth such meeting, held October 14-15, 2013 in Irvine, California. It observes that Big Data has now become a defining challenge of our time, and that the database research community is uniquely positioned to address it, with enormous opportunities to make transformative impact. To do so, the report recommends significantly more attention to five research areas: scalable big/fast data infrastructures; coping with diversity in the data management landscape; end-to-end processing and understanding of data; cloud services; and managing the diverse roles of people in the data life cycle.

Why IT Fumbles Analytics - HBR

Why IT Fumbles Analytics - HBR | Big Data - Visual Analytics | Scoop.it
Tech projects should focus less on technology and more on information.
Andreas Maniatis's insight:

More "Oldies but Goodies" from the HBR:

"Deploying analytical IT tools is relatively easy. Understanding how they might be used is much less clear”.

In their quest to extract insights from the massive amounts of data now available from internal and external sources, many companies are spending heavily on IT tools and hiring data scientists. Yet most are struggling to achieve a worthwhile return. That’s because they treat their big data and analytics projects the same way they treat all IT projects, not realizing that the two are completely different animals.
