Tony Agresta's curator insight, December 31, 2012 10:01 AM

Intuition helps but there's no substitute for big data technology and analysis.  Technology to ingest, store, search and analyze big data will proliferate across government and commerical sectors in 2013 and beyond.

 

Techniques for segmentation, clustering and modeling data allow organizations to revel meaning hidden inside massive amount of data.

 

Experienced analysts can recommend independent attributes for inclusion in the analysis, variables that have explanatory power in a model or segmentation scheme.  When this experience is coupled with data discovery methods to explore data in an unconstrained way, analysts can pinpoint data elements and relationships that may be correlated with a specific outcome and therefore improve the accuracy of the model.  It’s the combination of intuition, proven experience, flexible discovery tools, proven statistical methods and a full set of data that lead to the fastest, most significant insights.

 

This freedom to explore data has other benefits including identifying missing or poor quality data yielding improved standards and collection processes.  Most of this can be discovered through profiles and histograms of each data field.

 

Data discovery tools, when combined with the approaches referenced above, allow analysts to confirm findings and expand the way analyst’s model data. During this process, the analyst may discover new ways to transform data, group continuous data into categorical data or calculate new data attributes to be used in the analysis. 

 

This class of tools has the added advantage of telling a story about your data using a full complement of visualizations designed to focus the audience on insights and conclusions.  Once the data story is presented to the business, they rapidly draw conclusions to shape programs.

 

Look at the work MarkLogic has done with Tableau Software to better understand the enhanced power of data discovery using the full breadth of both unstructured and structured data. Sure, intuition is important.  But proven analytical methods that leverage new forms of data in real time will give you the most bang for your buck.

How Large Enterprises are Benefiting from The Use of NoSQL Database

How Large Enterprises are Benefiting from The Use of NoSQL Database | City Data | Scoop.it
For the most part, the world of database management systems has been ruled by the SQL model for quite some time. There have been a few alternative methods that have temporarily popped up but SQL has maintained its dominance.

Quite true, the NoSQL movement is gaining momentum and this trend will continue for years to come.   But beware - not all NoSQL approaches are the same.   At MarkLogic, we distinguish between the open source vendors, some legacy relational players with nascent offerings and our Enterprise approach with 6 releases over 10 years.  Areas of distinction include but not are not limited to developer productivity, application performance and enterprise readiness.

 

Advanced search using facets, geospatial search, entity enrichment, data consistency, the ability to retrieve multiple documents, integration with the BI stack using SQL, real time data ingestion and security are just some of the areas that organizations evaluating this class of technology should look closely at.

 

Here are two links to additional information on these topics:

Will 2013 be the year that companies take full advantage of big data?

Institutions are one the place that centralization and big data make sense. IBM is already on this trail in Canada for government communication.  ~  Deb
