Show Host Klaas Brant Commentary

If you have been to IOD 2011 in Las Vegas then the words Big Data will probably still resonate in your mind. The theme of IOD was "Turn Insight into action" and IBM is the only company that can do this for all sort of big data. Most people think that big data is all about Hadoop. And although Hadoop is one of the components in IBM's solutions it is not what big data is all about. Dan Dubriwny gives in this episode an excellent introduction into big data. It is all about Variety, Velocity and Volume. IBM can handle all of this for both data streams and data at rest. Probably by now you are curious how this all works, so go ahead and enjoy Dan's presentation with numerous examples.
