    Why Big Trust is Big Data’s missing DNA

    Ovum StraightTalk

    In the rush to monetize customer data, companies risk diminishing the trust people have in services and brands. Sustaining and growing people’s trust in services is not just about “doing the right thing,” but also makes commercial sense. Telcos and OTT players have worked to establish a satisfactory level of trust with their customers, but as Big Data creates new opportunities for monetizing customer data, even a little more aggression in its exploitation risks driving mistrust among users.

    Cloud management and analytics - finally the IaaS market heats up

    cloudbestpractices.net

    While it is fun to watch the 800 lb Gorilla squash every one, Amazon has to face competition at some point. Even just for the sake of something to write about! While AWS is fundamentally amazing, it’s now quite a well established and therefore boring facet of the market. It’s far more interesting to explore who might rise to give them serious threat, and how.

    SAP and SAS partner for fast big data in-memory analytics

    Ovum StraightTalk

    SAP and SAS announced a new partnership to create a joint product roadmap for in-memory analytics solutions. The aim is to make SAS’s advanced analytics software run smoothly on SAP’s HANA in-memory platform, helping joint customers run bigger, more complex, and faster analysis workloads. The combination of technologies is potentially compelling for customers looking to mine intelligence out of Big Data. However, depending on which side’s perspective you take, this is a curious tie-up between two fierce analytic rivals that each market and sell their own in-memory platforms.

    'Head of the cloud', or head in the clouds?

    Easynet

    A little learning is a dangerous thing, scribed poet Alexander Pope in 1711, possibly to distract his wife from improving her bible studies knowledge or honing her counterpoint skills. Three hundred years later and whilst most of us no longer frown upon a lady flashing her ankles nor rush to join a harpsichord recital, never could the statement be truer. Smartphones and tablets have brought about the collision of the worlds of IT and telecoms, and are responsible for us all knowing a little bit about IT.

    How big data improves - and complicates - predictive analytics

    Andy Flint

    You would think, that the rise of Big Data and its seemingly inexhaustible supply of data would be every analyst’s dream. But Big Data poses its own challenges for modelling. Much of Big Data isn’t what we have historically thought of as “data” at all. In fact, 80% of Big Data is raw, unstructured information, such as text, and doesn’t neatly fit into the columns and rows that feed most modelling programs. Here’s how data scientists seeking to harness Big Data for predictive modelling have addressed the challenges presented by a mass of messy data.
