Big data:
Can it really

change our lives?

Big data should make cities smarter, businesses more productive and individuals happier, healthier and better connected.

The world's data is doubling every 18 months. By 2020, 50 billion "things" will be connected to the internet.

 

The big data revolution is taking place across all sectors of industry and each level of government.

 

In order to generate personal value, we must move from mining vast quantities of data to making that data meaningful and actionable for people. At the same time, we must ensure that concerns over data privacy, ownership and accountability are resolved. Ultimately, big data should make cities smarter, businesses more productive and individuals happier, healthier and better connected. We can work with you to achieve that goal.

Big data: Can it really change our lives?

 

Imagine a society in which potential illnesses are identified before we even get them, or are tracked before they worsen, in which we can control air pollution and reduce energy consumption, or where a healthy meal, thanks to technology, is cooked to perfection before anyone gets home.


Big data makes many of these innovations possible. Where once infrastructures were molded by tools of stone and metal, today we have begun to build an IT world in ‘the cloud’ with a collection of data so enormous and complex that we are only beginning to understand its worth.

Making sense of the chaos: From data mining to data meaning

 

Data is the new natural resource. Media pundits, scientists, and futurists the world over are hailing the information gathered by connected devices as more important to this century than oil was to the 20th century. Just as crude can be used to make anything from plastics to petrol, so data has the potential to fuel global economies. By bringing us potentially limitless information about ourselves, our communities, and our world, data promises to transform the way we live and work.
