But what about the little guys?
Is big data – and all the useful insights we can glean from analysing this growing plethora of digital information – solely the preserve of big business?
Far from it, comes the resounding answer from a chorus of experts.
Big data, and the analytical techniques associated with it, could help give your small business the tools it needs to grow rapidly and even go global, they say.
And turning all this data into understandable, useful applications is becoming a business opportunity in itself.
“Big data analytic’s is absolutely relevant to small businesses,” says Dave Coplin, Microsoft’s chief envisioning officer. “There’s a growing number of open data sets out there that could be useful, as well as data marketplaces small businesses can go to.”
