Forbes recently featured a piece by Meta S. Brown, author of Data Mining for Dummies, that discusses the pros and cons of making full use of big data. In “Big Data Breakdown: Use the Right Analytics for the Business Problem”, Brown notes, “Many business problems can be addressed with less data that expected. Perhaps only 10% as much, or 1%, or even less.” Do you agree with Brown’s observation? Tell us your big data stories on Twitter with the hashtag #passbac.
