  • GB: How to get on the right side of the big data divide

    Some businesses are now starting to take big data more seriously, while others have still barely heard of the two words in the same sentence. There's a schism developing between the data haves and have nots, and that will soon translate into commercial success for the early adopters, and a missed opportunity for the laggards.

    These are some of the findings from Computing's latest research into the topic, in preparation for the Big Data and Analytics Summit on the 17 March.

  • GB: Organisations still struggling to find big data skills

    Many organisations are continuing to struggle with major recruitment gaps in their big data skillsets. While the very largest and best known firms attract the top candidates, most are finding it almost impossible to find appropriately skilled staff.

  • GB: The road to big data discovery

    The promise of unlocking competitive value from big data assets continues to provoke excitement and apprehension for directors and IT teams. If successful, the combination of new data sources together with advanced analytics capabilities can indeed unleash untold opportunities.

    Yet, no matter what the industry, creating the type of intelligent discovery environment required to generate competitive advantage from big data is often less than straightforward.

    While in most instances, traditional analytics and methodologies are fairly robust, in big data projects, the introduction of new analytics technologies will inevitably create a learning curve. In many cases, this is compounded by the use of previously unfamiliar open source data storage tools such as Hadoop that historically have never existed in the organisation.

  • How the lack of the right data affects the promise of big data in India

    Big data is the big buzzword these days. Big data refers to a collection of data sets or information too large and complex to be processed by standard tools. It is the art and science of combining enterprise data, social data and machine data to derive new insights, which it otherwise would not be possible to derive. It is also about combining past data with real time data to predict or suggest outcomes in a current or future context.

    The digital footprint is progressively expanding world over, into fragmented mediums (blogs, tweets, reviews etc.) and technologies (mobile, web, cloud/SaaS etc.).
