Over the past couple of weeks I’ve come across the following articles, blog posts and discussions about Big Data and Analytics. There seems to be an underlying theme of ‘let’s get back to the core of the problem’ and big data is not that useful and only in certain cases.
As the Analytics 3.0 article indicates we should be concentrating on how we can use analytics to achieve a real goal for the organisation.
Most data sets are 40-60GB range – I can do that on my laptop, so that cannot be Big Data
It is also interesting to note that most of the people who have been working in the area for years (10+) are not believes in Big Data or they don’t even consider calling themselves Data Scientists.
The purpose of this post to to record these links in one place and to share with everyone else who might be interested.
