Roger Magoulas, ist Director of Research bei O’Reilly. In einem Interview nimmt er Stellung zur Bedeutung von Big Data:
„Big Data has become really the key core competence in the information age, what distinguishes the current era. It’s really when data is large enough that you really have to think about it: How you’re going to organise it, how you’re going to store it, how you’re going to manage it, in order to gain some benefit from it. Big data can confer enormous competitive advantage for those who can make the most sense out of it and take actions based on what they’re learning.”
