The Humbling Effect of Big Data

To me, Big Data is not all about technology. Far from it. I’d argue that there’s a human element in all new technologies, and Big Data is no exception to this rule. There’s an organizational readiness component to it, as well as a personal one. Will people and organizations unaccustomed to consulting the data suddenly change their behavior? Will they be open-minded? Or will they act as if they know how things have worked, work now, and will work in the future.

Are we ready for this?
