In "The Human Face of Big Data," author Rick Smolan states that for "big data...the potential and consequences of which few have even started to contemplate."

Big Data: Getting Smarter with Customer Engagement

Big Data: Getting Smarter with Customer Engagement | Implications of Big Data | Scoop.it
Picture this: You call customer service at your phone company to fix an issue with your phone. The agent answers and greets you by name before you have an opportunity to say hello. After asking how your day has been, he gets down to business. He knows you tweeted about your problem on Twitter yesterday and apologizes that nobody got back to you right away. He is also aware that you recently chatted with a customer representative two days ago when setting up your phone, and that you are experiencing dropped calls. Lastly, he states what he perceives to be the issue and asks you to confirm. Before long he gets to the root of your problem and transfers you to the person who can help. Within a few minutes, the call is over, your problem is fixed and you hang up satisfied. This seamless service interaction is a moment that lives on in a customer’s mind, and sets the expectation for how all experiences should go. It’s the result of a smarter customer engagement strategy, and the magic wand that makes it happen is big data.

Tired of Big Data hype? You haven’t seen anything yet! This year will bring Big Data chainsaws, Big Data breath mints and Big Data disposable wipes. I fully expect that Korean megastar Psy will change his name to Sir Hadoop-sa-lot, release a new hit song called, “Big Data Style” and will retake his title as most-watched person on YouTube. But don’t despair; somewhere in all of that noise the tech industry is indeed making major strides in creating real, value-added solutions.
