Re: Big data becomes business as usual
In additio to "business as usual", I would also say big data comes to small. When we talk about big data, we think about big Hadoop cluster, HDFS and the other common components such as Hive, HBase, etc. But indeed the effort from the company like SiSense made the big data world small - the analytics become a common practice that can be exectued in RAM or even in CPU cache, which is really amazing. In the future, the big data and its application/analytics will become part of our daily life, just like electricity today.

Re: Big data becomes business as usual
If analytics follows the path of other fundamentally useful technologies, such as those you mention, it will certainly become something built in and taken for granted. It appears to be on that path. Not that there won't still be specialized super analytics setups. But the rest of us will no longer be held hostage by them. Thanks for your comment.

Big data becomes business as usual
Michael. Nice look at what SiSense is doing. I wonder if this is a step toward a time when we don't even think about big data analytics as a specialty but just build it into what we do every day. If we can integrate the analytics with the standard hardware that processes the application itself, maybe we will someday not need special groups that do analytics, but the tools and templates for decision making will be available to everyone. Could analytics become an almost automatic function for the end user like some other technologies have become (most networking, security and storage tasks) in the past decade or two?

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
