I think that is the jist of the IBM ad running on TV showing people fishing, running, walking on the riverbank and then breaking them down into their own preferred activities, likes and wants. Great ad related to this topic.......
Rohscompliant, Correct. Sometime I ask myself, though, what type of big data would supply chain professionals want access to and will they actually have access to this? Imagine knowing what the competition is planning to build based on their component orders?
Big data requires radically different and much more efficient analytical tools. Big Data is beneficial to large companies like Wall mart. But whether the smaller partners in the supply chain can afford to take advantage of this Behemoth is a Big question as the extraction of the required information from Big Data cannot be done by the currently used data analytics tools on desktops or servers.
Like any data or info available I would think you would want to mine it for all of it's value. B.D. will become a componet of corporate decision making but not the only driver of decisions. It will have a place in decision making processes.
