Big Data Analytics: 80/20 Rule Isn’t Good Enough

Big Data Analytics: 80/20 Rule Isn’t Good Enough | Daunting Data | Scoop.it

Information is nothing if we don’t do something with it. The companies that do invest, implement effective data governance strategies, and leverage the right tools both internal and third-party will be the industry leaders. They won’t settle for the 80/20 rule for driving results from their data. They’ll expect to get results from everything, to save everywhere and enhance the customer experience at all levels. The recent Economist article by Schumpeter points out, this won’t happen by “massive, instant holy grail solutions,” but rather by “lots of small advances.”

A different dialect on the fight of segmentation vs. correlation; is it one or the other?

Momentis Systems's curator insight, July 29, 8:56 AM

"If companies don’t cultivate the seeds of their data, they won’t progress in the next five years."


With the rapid growth of everything 'online' from the Cloud to IoT, companies must take measures to understand not only their data but the path their industries are taking. They need to take a stance to understand in the early stages in order to stay afloat in the coming years. If we think that our data is 'big' now, imagine what it will be like in 5 years!

Markham Nolan: How to separate fact and fiction online | Video on TED.com

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, May 20, 2013 6:25 PM

Great talk by world class journalist, Markham Nolan, based in Dublin. Here are some of the nuggets: Twitter is where journalists go 1st and raid Twitter lists for good sources; YouTube is a great repository for what's going on in the world. All sources needs to be checked since there is a lot of fake stuff. Free web tools provide great resources for cross-checking such as Spokeo and Google maps.

 

While there is a great abundance of info on the Internet, it is more important than ever to filter through what you need to find the right stuff, and then verify that it's accurate. The truth is never binary. You will never be able to remove the human being from the truth seeking exercise, which is what journalists do. So do researchers and competitive intelligence analysts. I guess we have good job secuirty.

Privileged Information: The Fight for an Open Internet | SFWeekly.com

Privileged Information: The Fight for an Open Internet | SFWeekly.com | Daunting Data | Scoop.it

On the top floor of the Internet Archive headquarters at Geary and Funston in the Richmond District, there is an enormous temple of sorts, a room flooded by the amber light streaming through thick golden windows, in which several rows of empty pews face an empty stage. Actually, the pews aren't empty — they're occupied by 4-foot-tall papier-mâché statues, standing at attention like acolytes at a sermon. Each statue is modeled after an employee who has worked there for at least three years. They are founder Brewster Kahle's way to "commemorate the people that have helped build the Archive."

 

The stage isn't empty, either, housing one bank of the enormous servers that keep the Internet Archive's virtual library available to millions of users. It's a treasure trove of books, films, music, and software made free, often with the consent of its creators. It's also the home of the Wayback Machine, an online resource that archives "dead links" from throughout the Internet's history. To date, more than 281 billion web pages are archived in the Machine, preserved here long after the original pages' hosts have turned off their servers and moved on. That time the Chronicle interviewed you about a fire in the Outer Sunset in 1999? Go take a look — it's likely in there. When people talk about things lasting forever on the Internet, they're talking about this place. The Archive's goal, as Kahle puts it, is to be a "modern Library of Alexandria. When people download too much of our stuff, that's a good thing. It just means we need bigger servers."
