It was intended to describe the harnessing of critical information from disparate systems and situating that information into one place for analysis. It was the sort of innocuous term that seemed like nothing more than the latest buzzword we could all ignore. Do you want the truth? Many small companies did just that. They gave the concept of big data the cold shoulder. To…

National Instruments announced its intent to acquire the Israeli data analytics startup OptimalPlus for $365 million. The two companies share many of the same enterprise-level customers within the automotive, semiconductor, and electronics industries which is one of the reasons that I believe this acquisition makes a lot of sense.

I’m working on a market study of the system integrators (SIs) who implement warehouse management systems (WMS). I was under the impression that software suppliers write the software, and either SIs or/and the software company implement the software. It’s not that simple. Sometimes the system integrators write software that complements the WMS solutions that they implement. These SIs have learned the weaknesses in various systems and have written complementary applications to close the gaps. One…

Consumers are inundated every day with ads for products and services. The number of options is exhausting. What makes consumers stop and pay attention? As brands work to answer this question, they become more creative as a result. In fact, many are diving into the benefits of big data analytics. For instance, in 2016 Starbucks started using AI to send personalized offerings to its customers via email. Beyond customizing drinks to match personal tastes, the company uses…

When most data scientists talk about challenges with rising data demands, you assume this only affects large enterprises. However, 95% of businesses need to manage unstructured data, but many of them don’t know how.

Just as we now have supercars, supermodels, superspreaders and super-sized meals, we now have big business, big data and of course Big Macs. Regardless of the hype cycle, big data has firmly entered our tech-business vocabulary. We now use it as a kind of blanket term when we talk about the massive web-scale information streams being passed over the…
