I am not usually a fan of market analysts and especially market reports that report X market worth zigabillions with no qualification to market sizing methodology, categorization, data source or actual product adoption. However john Rymer is a Forrester analyst who has a rather good "crabby old guy" rant on big data. Read the rant its well worth noting - as is the closing lines: "My hope is that we start zeroing in on the scenarios and the value to enterprises of the various big data solutions that address each scenario. By doing so, we'll unlock the value of big data a lot faster. " Could not agree more. Click on the image or title to learn more.
