Big Data

The well-known three Vs of Big Data - Volume, Variety, and Velocity – are increasingly placing pressure on organizations that need to manage this data as well as extract value from this data deluge for Predictive Analytics and Decision-Making. Big Data technologies, services, and tools such as Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive and NoSQL/NewSQL databases and Data Integration techniques, In-Memory approaches, and Cloud technologies have emerged to help meet the challenges posed by the flood of Web, Social Media, Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) data flowing into organizations.

The topics of resilience and change have been on my mind a lot lately for a variety of reasons. First, IT is always at the center of technology change, so that's nothing new. We must continually learn and keep abreast of new technology and trends before they even materialize. Second, I am an IT leader in the energy industry, and when one is at the mercy of natural resource supply and demand, there will be peaks and valleys in production and financial performance over the years. With this latest dip in energy prices, I sense a different perspective—one of working smarter and more efficiently, emphasizing innovation, and analyzing decisions with an enterprise perspective of what is right for the company at this time, not just IT.

There's unrelenting pressure on businesses to compete on analytics and to be able to anticipate customer needs and trends ahead of the curve.

In the future, the clear winners in the IoT Revolution will be those companies that not only embrace the Internet of Things, but use it to transform their businesses. Those winning companies will be the ones that integrate IoT into their operations, products, and customer interactions to create new business models and sources of value. In fact, McKinsey estimates there could be as much as $11 trillion per year by 2020 in new economic value from adopting IoT.

We live in an "as-it-happens" world, and consumers expect on-demand everything—TV, taxi service, you name it. That same culture is now (and rightly so) expected in businesses. Don't just think about "good enough"—think and plan for real time. The technology is here now to leverage real time in your business for shorter feedback loops, improved time-to-market, and happier customers. The sooner, the better. It's never too early for real time. "Good enough" simply isn't, well, good enough anymore.

As many companies begin to look to other methods of data storage other than traditional methods such as data warehouses, cloud storage has become a popular option that organizations are beginning to use. Cloud offers companies better cost and more flexibility than traditional storage methods and companies are beginning to make use of Cloud and its advantages. When considering cloud storage options, there are lots of different questions that a company must weigh. Sarah Maston, developer advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, covered the move to the cloud in a recent DBTA webinar.

IT suppliers and data management managers are experiencing a major pain point with efficient data logging management. The availability of NoSQL open source software has enabled enterprises to collect large volumes of data from different sources, and software companies have implemented "call back home" features that allow their software to send information to data collection centers within various parameters, creating additional run time configurations and data traffic. And as the Internet of Things and a "connected everything" approach to businesses become increasingly popular, more and more data will flow in and out of data management systems, leaving IT managers muddled with millions of pieces of data they must properly manage and store.
