Big Data Predictions for 2016

December 07 2015

We all know that big data means lots of data that has been collected over the years by the companies from various sources but just collecting the data is not enough as it is not going to make you any smarter if it is not put to some actual real life use. Without any usage big data is just like a pile of waste that rats collect in the house. Yours could be very well organized and may even have a potential which makes it worth keeping but if you are not going to use it, you will never get the benefits which you deserve and all the pain that you took in the first place to collect the so much data will become a waste.
