How to use Big Data to start small - Econsultancy

How to use Big Data to start small - Econsultancy | Big Data ... & Small | Scoop.it
The big promise of big data for marketers is to be able to use all the data we have. By looking at all the information, big data allows us to explore minute details without the risk of blurriness.

 

Key excerpt...

 

There are lots of people talking about big data, so let’s first establish that Big Data is data that has the three “V” qualities:

Volume: There is a LOT of it.Velocity:  It is created, transmitted and received at a very fast rate, as in real time data sourcing.Variety:  It is multi-structured (not linear or easily aligned to a structured database format) and sourced from multiple customer interactions. This might include clickstream (website visits), behavioral insights, email and SMS response data, social posts and tweets and search keyword activity.

 

In essence, big data disrupts marketing. It upsets the normal “container” of marketing data, because the unstructured and multi-structured formats don’t match the kinds of one-to-one relationship of data element with database field (the way that structured data works). 

 

It upsets the CRM model because it’s fluid, hard to sort and prioritize and not always attributable to a specific person.  It also disrupts the infrastructure cap ex budget. Big data is just that: Big.
