Due to the unprecedented volume, variety, and velocity of Big Data, it is neither trivial nor straightforward to find a clear path to jumpstart the Big Data journey. This space is overwhelmingly crowded with so many immature options and evolving solutions. To some extent it is somewhat confusing and daunting. Where can you find an entry point? What is the most effective way to get on board? Which aspects should you be mindful of? How can you not miss the paramount things? Why do you need to begin with the basics? Here are five areas of consideration for Big Data on-ramp: Structure, Location, Objective, Participant, and Event (SLOPE). Structure: The data format is the first and foremost factor. Confining to the traditional structured contents is no longer sufficient in this era. We have to pay close attention to how we will deal with the unstructured and semi-struct... (more)

Big Data Is Really Dead | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IoT #InternetOfThings

IDG Enterprise's 2015 Big Data and Analytics survey shows that the number of organizations with deployed/implemented data-driven projects has increased by 125% over the past year. The momentum continues to build. Big Data as a concept is characterized by 3Vs: Volume, Velocity, and Variety. Big Data implies a huge amount of data. Due to the sheer size, Big Data tends to be clumsy. The dominating implementation solution is Hadoop, which is batch based. Not just a handful of companies in the market merely collect lots of data with noise blindly, but they don't know how to cleanse it,... (more)

Service-Oriented Cloud Computing

As the industry focus has been shifting from SOA to Cloud Computing, it becomes clear that we should leverage what we have accomplished in the SOA endeavor in the last decade. More importantly we ought to make full of the lessons learned in the SOA work to ensure that we don't repeat the inefficient routes and fall into the pitfalls and overhypes. A pragmatic approach is to pursue service-oriented cloud computing. Please contact Tony Shan (tonycshan@gmail.com) for more info. ... (more)

Big Data, Big Analytics, and Big Insights

Every day 2.5 quintillion (1018) bytes of data are created, and 90% of the data in the world today has been generated in the last couple of years alone. Big data is a general term used to describe the voluminous amount of unstructured and semi-structured data, which takes too much time and cost too much money to load into a traditional data store for analysis. The impact of big data is significantly cross-cutting, for both the business and technology management at the provider and consumer sides. 2012 tends to be a big year for big data and big analytics. To effectively explore ... (more)
