What big data really means 4 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting “Big data usually includes data sets with sizes beyond the ability of commonly-used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Big data sizes are a constantly moving target, as of 2012 ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data in a single data set…” Wikipedia, as of September 2012 and still current “Big data usually includes data sets with sizes beyond the ability of commonly-used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Big data sizes are a constantly moving target, as of 2012 ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data in a single data set…” Wikipedia, as of September 2012 and still current “Big Data are high-volume, high-velocity, and/or high- variety information assets that require new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision making, insight discovery and process optimization.” Gartner, as of June 2012 “Big Data are high-volume, high-velocity, and/or high- variety information assets that require new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision making, insight discovery and process optimization.” Gartner, as of June 2012 Fact A big ball of marketing fluff?
Big data in the tri-domain information model Process-mediated data – “Traditional” operational & informational data – Via data entry and cleansing processes Machine-generated data – Output of machines and sensors – The Internet of Things Human-sourced information – Subjectively interpreted record of personal experiences – From Tweets to Videos 5 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting Human-sourced information Machine- generated data Process-mediated data Structure/Context Timeliness/ Consistency HistoricalReconciledStableLiveIn-flight Raw Atomic Derived Compound Textual Multiplex [In the context of these domains, “data” signifies well-structured and/or modeled and “information” is more loosely structured and human-centric.]
Big analytics is the only answer 6 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting Fiction
Wal-Mart Data Warehouse – 1991 … 340GB; 2004 … 460TB – 2008 … 2.5PB; 2013 … 10+PB – From the beginning, more than BI – Supply chain management – Predictive analytics “All models are wrong, but some are useful” – George E. P. Box, statistician, 1979 “All models are wrong, and increasingly you can succeed without them” – Peter Norvig, research director, Google, 2008 – The End of Theory: The Data Deluge Makes the Scientific Method Obsolete, Chris Anderson, Wired, June 2008 www.wired.com/science/discoveries/magazine/16-07/pb_theory www.wired.com/science/discoveries/magazine/16-07/pb_theory A fairy tale of Big Analytics 7 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting
Modern business computing demands we consider three parties. 8 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting Information Process People Rationality of thought and far beyond it Logic of process, predefined and emergent Information, knowledge and meaning Business unIntelligence http://bit.ly/BunI-Technics : 25% discount with code “BIInsights25” http://bit.ly/BunI-Technics
The human and social dimension: Gut-feel, intent and interaction Meaning is a personal/ social interpretation based (loosely) on information and knowledge – Rationality is only one part – Emotional state plays an important role – Gut-feel can be more effective than rationality in decision making Intention drives understanding and action We are social animals – Business is a social enterprise Innovation is often team-based 9 Copyright © 2013 9sight Consulting
