“Big data” is the buzzword that is currently dominating professional conferences around data science, predictive modeling, data mining, and CRM, to name only a few of the domains that have become electrified by the prospect of incorporating qualitatively larger data sizes and more voluminous, high-velocity data streams into business or other organizational processes. As is usually the case when new technologies begin to transform industries, the technologies also introduce new ways of “thinking about” or conceptualizing problems and approaches for solutions, and indeed can open new horizons for a business altogether.
At the same time, there are domains and situations where, inevitably, the excitement about new technologies around big data can give way to great disappointment, when the investments fail to yield expected ROI. It is important to use proven tools that not only can access, process, and leverage big data, but also fit-in and integrate with other existing data repositories and IT assets, and extract actionable information to optimize processes, solve problems, and lead to “big insights.”
StatSoft has years of experience and expertise in high-velocity and big-data applications, ranging from automated manufacturing, complex high-velocity process monitoring and optimization, to real-time risk and fraud scoring.
