Big Data Isn’t a Thing; Big Data is a State of Mind

“Big Data is dead.” “Big Data is passé.”

“We no longer need Big Data; we need Machine Learning now.”

As we end 2017 and look forward to big (data) things in 2018, the most important lessons of 2017 – in fact, maybe the most important lesson going forward – is that Big Data is NOT a thing. Big Data isn’t about the volume, variety or velocity of data any more than car…

How Digital is changing the workplace?

Remember the early 90s, when the mobile phones were not there. The only way to communicate to an out of office employee was landline phone or personal message via a colleague. Today there is no distinction between professional and personal lives as we are always connected.
