Big Data Means Nothing If It Isn’t Smart

Big Data Means Nothing If It Isn’t Smart | Business Industry | Scoop.it

Barry Magee's curator insight, March 4, 2014 10:28 AM

We've addressed this issue of timeliness within IBM Inside Sales analytics programme using seller ALERTS. Normally, a rep would have to log-in to our BI tool to seek out the 'data-driven' insight the desire.  We've instead created a process where an algorithm detects any new Client activity and creates a weekly ALERT which is sent via email to sellers INBOX.  Seller the goes to log-in to BI tool BAU and take appropriate action to follow up.  This CLOSED LOOP system means  you're no longer dependent on end-users pro-actively going in to your BAO system to seek out 'insight' - its brought right to their front door and they then follow up themselves.  There's as much to the PROCESS of delivering value through data - its not just about the data in isolation - CONTEXT is everything.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, March 19, 2014 5:48 PM

As often, we did approach Big data through technology... A common behavior that is reproduced most of the time.


Now, after 2 years of noise, I feel that we start to get over the "Big Data" buzz and that people get more mature in their thinking about it. Then, the true questions starts to pop-up: Why using it? what is/are our goals? What (new / enhanced) usages do we foresee that could be supported by Big Data?


This article is pointing at some of these questions and start to answer to some others...
