Gary Hayes's curator insight, February 2, 7:22 PM

Quote "

Big data can be a powerful tool for many businesses, in all sectors. Government agencies can use it to understand where social services need to be concentrated most, yet musicians can also use big data to work out which songs to play at their concerts, based on Spotify or other streaming music site data.

The opportunity is there, and companies know they need a big data strategy. Some have cracked it, some haven't, but it's clear that this will only improve, and there are certainly plenty of tech companies lining up to deliver a solution to the problem."
