Big Data: the final frontier?

Is Big Data the final frontier as some technology experts have suggested? Well, that all depends on your point of view. Some believe it is, whilst others are slightly more guarded in their opinions. What can’t be disputed is that big data is certainly the next technological frontier. The importance of data and its analysis can’t be over-estimated. The amount of available data has exploded over the last decade, driven largely by the growth of the internet, and the rise of multimedia and social media. Businesses and enterprise can see the enormous potential that this information can bring, but have struggled to come to terms with how best to analyse this data. The analysis of this data, or big data analytics, is crucial: it will ultimately become the key basis of competition, and will underpin new waves of productivity growth, innovation and consumer surplus. That’s the view of the McKinsey Institute, the global management consulting firm, and trusted advisor to the world’s leading businesses, governments and institutions.  MGI’s Business Technology Office believes that leaders in every sector will quickly have to come to terms with the implications of big data if they are to mine this information effectively.

Delivering Secure Critical National Infrastructure, 2012

Critical National Infrastructure is crucial to the continued delivery of essential services in the UK. Without the secure protection of this critical national information and data, the UK would suffer serious consequences including severe economic damage, grave social disruption and potentially the large-scale loss of a life. The protection of critical infrastructure will undoubtedly be shaped by a growing understanding of the threats posed by climate change and growing energy insecurity. These issues, in tandem with the continued global economic crisis, have the potential to constrict security spending and further reduce the personnel levels within our vital critical networks and services. Consequently the sector faces severe challenges.  Continue reading…
