I agree that the systems/technologies that an org will need to create situational awareness with their data will be very different than what they have today. I also agree that data management environments (big data, rdbms, etc) in of themselves will not solve this problem, however, I believe the beginning steps in the right direction are establishing a robust scalable data layer not bound by the constrains of a typical rdbms, it is this scalable data layer that will enable the advanced analytics (which also do not exist in most orgs) to begin to answer some of the questions you pose.

Hi Jeff,

Just discovered your blog, I'm a long time data jockey--sold a data warehouse/BI stack to Cisco about 4 years back.

Just curious if there are any products on the market that approach your vision, or if only the upper echelon at IBM have been blessed with a glimpse of the future at this point in time :)

Cheers

Hi,

I applaud your efforts to elevate this topic to a business discussion. Creating meaningful use cases will help bridge what has been, for too long, localized and academic efforts to solve parts of this problem.

Architectural patterns like pub-sub/ESB, data warehouse/datamart, and classification/association have been used to attack this problem "in the small" - not always at the enterprise level (as in, scope of business and range of data) as you suggest.

I don't think it's a problem of lack of tools and methods, as there has been a lot of technical work on this in the KDD (Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining) community, as well as for text the IR (Information Retrieval) community.

The problem is in the way businesses (and IT) think about and organize their approach to data management. More attention to the possibilities from the business might drive better solutions.

Keep beating the drum!
