Even though everyone admits that Big Data is a big deal there is no consensus on its definition and typically leads to how big is big. Instead of unnecessary debating whether the data volume that an organization manages can be classified as Big Data or not I prefer to explain the opportunities of the Big Data trend. This exactly is the focus of Timo Elliot’s Big Data webinar tomorrow. He will provide at great use cases that will help clarify the importance of Big Data and why it’s such a big deal.
