Wikibon’s Big Data Research Agenda: Technology, Ecosystem and Application

Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 1.51.45 PMI’ve already laid out my predictions for Big Data in 2014, but I also wanted to let the Wikibon community know how my colleagues and I plan to cover Big Data in the year ahead. We’ve organized our research agenda into three major buckets.

Technology. Clearly the technologies and products that collectively make up Big Data – including Hadoop, NoSQL data stores, analytic databases, data visualization tools and more – are maturing at a rapid pace (much faster, for example, than relational databases did in the 1980s.) Big Data is also applicable across industries,  meaning these technologies are inevitably and increasingly intersecting with adjacent technology movements, namely the cloud, mobile computing and social media. As we have for the last several years, Wikibon will devote significant coverage to these developments with an eye on putting technology innovations in context for enterprise Big Data practitioners (both technology practitioners and line-of-business practitioners.)
