Re: Start with Little Data
I appreciate this idea, too. We cannot hope to make a sharp turnaround from legacy IT system to a data-driven smart  IT infrastructure. Instead we need to be patient with the smooth transition from legacy system to big data driven system. This is not a pure technical but also a procedural, organization and even mindset issue.

Start with Little Data
Good quote in the article:  "I think one of the biggest things holding back general applicability [of big data initiatives] is businesses that can't get to their data."

Transform fragmented data architecture into an environment where business decision-makers have consistent, reliable information access and can make better informed business decisions.  Fundamental 'little data' disciplines such as master data management, data governance, data lineage, and data staging fundaments are pre-requisites before to turning data into information, scaling business intelligence delivery, and achieving the insights required to gain competitive advantage.

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
