Big Data Prompts Organizations to Rely on Innovative Information Delivery Solutions

November 21, 2012

The hot topic in any industry are inherently connected to corresponding hot jobs. In technology, big data would not be possible without data scientists. Recently, ZDNet posted a video featuring the musings of IBM data evangelist James Kobielus in the posting, “Why Data Scientists Are In Demand And How They Enable Big Data.” After facing some initial skepticism that big data did not exist, Kobielus speaks to the reality of its impact on the world.

Firstly, he discusses that traditional technologies such as massively parallel database are incorporated into the concept of big data, but it also refers to many innovative open source projects focused on analytics. According to Kobielus, there will be 1.2 million new jobs created in the big data analytics sector over the next decade. It is not surprising to read that many of these will fall under the category of data scientist.

The brief introduction to the clip summarizes the video:

In this two-minute video clip, IBM big data evangelistĀ James Kobielus explains what a data scientist does, the skill set that it requires, how they collaborate with subject matter experts to deliver important insights, and why the role is so important to the future of IT and big data.

Big data means one thing and one thing only for most enterprise organizations: more information for employees to utilize in achieving ROI. Information management solutions such as those from PolySpot enable users to pinpoint the information they need in near real-time.
