Going into the weekend, I complete two weeks of my journey with Kapital Data and have one BIG data question. Do I focus on Big Data or Small Data?
Most enterprises are discovering that their big data is born first on someone's smart phone. Or on small devices with tiny sensors. Processing this data and deriving meaning is most likely ocurring on a laptop. So does that mean these enterprises don't have a big data problem? The actual size of the data is not what makes data Big Data. It's the nature of the data that qualifies it as such.
Adjectives aren't timeless. Today's big data is tomorrow's medium data and next year's small data. In that context, there is no such thing as Big Data. There is just data.
Current technologies make it possible for me to state there is no such data that is "big enough". Moore's law applies.
On that note, have a good weekend. Go out and spend some guilt-free big data.
