Big Data, it is all about it at the moment


The IT industry has a penchant for inventing new buzz words for topics that have been around for years in one form or another and perhaps Big Data is another example.

Yet just this week Capgemini announced the findings of a report (“The Deciding Factor: Big Data & Decision Making”) which showed that, in a study of over 600 C-Level execs, 9 out of 10 leaders believe data is as fundamental to their business as people and capital.

With the amount of data being generated reaching astronomical levels (and accelerating) buzz word or not, Big Data is a problem all business leaders need a strategy for.

Ever wondered just how much information is created? Domo produced an eye-opening infographic which you might be interested in.
