Privacy will always be a work in progress, but now that health insurers can't reject customers anymore, it's not as critical as it once was. But there are other reasons you don't organizations to know your health data...and reasons you do such as research etc.
The question "What is Little Data" drove a robust Twitter chat Thursday. The notion of Little Data is relief from the ultimate Big Data Abstraction. First, the numbers: we had 31 participants and 260 Tweets.
We will, of course, be chatting again at the usual time next - 2-3 p.m. EDT this Thursday. Remember to use the hashtag #CIOchat
We started with the basic question and drilled down from there. Here are some of my favorite Tweets. Occassionally, the Tweet doesn't answer the question, but is still worth mentioning.
Well said, Jeff, but we tend to write off what we don't understand. Some companies are benefitting from Big Data somewhere and they will lead. I would ask how does Amazon do Big Data. Amazon is the poster child for being data driven.
That last point is key and speaks to the lock in CIOs fear from public clouds. You have to use their stuff. Indeed, Amazon is not a big supporter of OpenStack.
Also, remember that many budget airlines became primary carriers - Virgin, JetBlue and Southwest immediately come to mind. But I get your point about hidden cloud costs and paying for a pillow or overhead bin on what would inherently be a crappy airline.
The number of small/medium businesses in the world is growing. This is, of course, recognized by governments – many Prime Ministers and Presidents are looking to SMB’s to lead their countries out of recession.
I see this trend inside HP marketing. We are increasingly using SMB’s for campaign material generation, newsletter generation, and so on.
