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.

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"
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.

IoT data
More than half of IT pros not preparing for onslaught of data from IoT sensors. Does this surprise you, or not? Companies in the energy sector are preparing now. This % must vary wildly by industry, of course.

Re: IoT data
Bit if a mystery to me why IT pros are investing in the software and application side of the Internet of things, but blowing off purchasing the hardware: sensors, video equipment, projectors, and other peripherals.

Big data and IoT - A connection made in heaven
Big Data will become more big because of the Internet of things. More powerful anlaytical tools are required. It's not the demise of data warehouse, they can go about churning the internal numbers that they always do. However the data which is hidden in big data will be the one that will make a difference. The internet of things is simple if you look at them individually. But the avalanche of data should be collected and taken action upon. Stream computing will become the need of the day. But this is only possible on powerful hardware. Otherwise, there can be delays in the response times. Each Big Data application would be different and anlaytical tools would spring up for every vertical. Data Centers are going to become more and more important as they have to contain this data flow.

When does big data = big confusion?
Isn't big data less useful if it's too big, too random? The analytics technologies are powerful, but wouldn't they be even more powerful in combination with a strategy for selecting and organizing the data we collect? Instead of letting the tech make the data collection process sloppy.

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.

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.

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!

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.
