Re: When does big data = big confusion?
I agree. IW posted a good article about how John Deere is using IoT to benefit themselves and their customers. There was another one about CSX improving operations with IoT tech. As you pointed out, they had a solid plan for collection and analysis.

Great guide to big data
Great article, Jeff!  Big data can be intimidating, so thank you for putting these facts into one comprehensive guide.  It makes everything easily accessible. I also liked the pictures, charts and graphs you used throughout - very helpful.

Follow the business
Great slide show with lots to think about from the technology/data perspective. From the business perspective, Forrester's recent advice has been to build the business case first, before deploying the technology. Make the business case (or cases) and the right tech choices will follow. Don't do it the other way around: build a platform, collect data and hope something will come of it.

Re: Video is the biggest "big data"
Actually the majority of that recorded video is from security cameras that run 24/7. This is the video data that our software integrates with other data sources to be used in a variety of ways, mainly fraud detection and prevention.

Re: When does big data = big confusion?
@David, it might be too big and random when it's stored, but entities/enterprises that are organized about and have pre-determined how they are going to use data before solliciting it are going to be more successful. If a company brings in data without pre-set plan, then, yes, it probably will get tangled.

Solink, 

Video increases hits on social media and websites exponentially, so that makes sense.....

Re: Video is the biggest "big data"
Big data a bubble? Only if you define bubble as a phenom where some people will lose a lot of money and some will make a lot of money. Some will spend well, with focus and clear goals on big data efforts, and some will chase the dream without discipline and not get a return. Big data initiatives won't lift all boats, but the value to the winners will be undeniable.

Re: Video is the biggest "big data"
Good article. Why do I get a sense is that a lot of the big data story is just another bubble? I can totally see enterpises to invest so much into it and underestanding a little pieaces of it but at the end ROI won't be there so after a few years they quite and the whole thing will be forgotten.

Big data - Enter with a torchlight or no?
Currently, most of the big data analytics in industries, other than web/social media, follow a 'jump into the data deluge' model without much thought about the right questions that have to be asked. Sometimes, this may work, say, while unearthing unseen patterns but most of the times, it may not. That's why there has to be a balance between the questions and exploratory analysis for actual results to be seen. Just adding another fact!
