it would be interesting to have someone like you from the vendor community respond to Stephen Few's recent article "Big Data. Big Deal." In it, he calls Big Data overhyped and accuses vendors of just selling the only thing they can - faster and bigger.


A link to examples of new business solutions Big Data has enabled would be a great cure for this "old-concept-dressed-in-new-buzzwords" sentiment.

Thanks, Thomas.

Hi Thomas

I did exactly what you suggested. I'd be interested in your opinion as to whether I was able to clearly state my points or not. Thanks for sending that along!

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
