New evidence is emerging that organizations across many industries are simply not ready for the challenges of big data. Oracle has released two new reports that add hard numbers to mounting concerns about the problems big companies face when dealing with data. This week’s report from Oracle polled 333 North American executives to find out how their companies and organizations are handling the onslaught of big data, both in terms of setting up big data infrastructure and then properly analyzing the data once they have it gathered. The number one problem? Translating information into actionable intelligence, was repoted by 48% of respondents. I think this is inkeeping wit the earlier post on Geoffrey Moore's presentation on Big Data and where it wss in the technology adoption curve.
