Big Data Business Model Maturity Index and the Internet of Things (IoT) Antonio Figueiredo (@afigueiredo) recently challenged me on twitter with an interesting question: How would the Big Data Business Model Maturity Index (BDBMMI) change to support the Internet of Things (IoT)? My hope is that the BDBMMI would not need to change to support IoT. It is my hope that the BDBMMI could be used to guide any industry that is going through a data and analytics-driven transformation, such as what is happening to many industries due to IoT. Let’s see how one could use the BDBMMI to help organizations to exploit the IoT. But before we start that exercise, let’s start with some key definitions: The Big Data Business Model Maturity Index (BDBMMI) is a framework to measure how effective an organization is at leveraging data and analytics to power the business (see Figure 1). We ...

The AIW book includes topics from the areas of machine learning, data mining, statistics, and discovery in knowledge bases. The literature on these topics is vast but it is, almost exclusively, academic and heavy in mathematical jargon. Nevertheless, ... (more)

A Tale of BI – What Data Visualization Can Tell You about Your Business

You've heard the great promise of business intelligence: data visualization will completely change the way you think about your business. We strive for those life-altering "aha" moments that completely shift the way we think, and help move us forward in a way we just couldn't before due to a lack of knowledge, clarity or inspiration. But how can data visualization promise to give us more of those moments? Data visualization, the graphical representation of data and information, can help you discover trends, patterns and correlations in your businesses that might otherwise go uns... (more)

Yelling ‘WebApp Firewall’ in a Crowded Data Center
