Big Data Strategy Model

The Big Data Strategy Model

The Big Data Strategy Model thus helps organisations to develop their big data strategy, and it does so in a comprehensive way. As Mark van Rijmenam, the founder of BigData-Startups.com, explains: “Big data is changing the way businesses—and even governments—are operated and managed, but many organisations are not yet familiar with the topic and/or have no clear overview of the big data ecosystem. This innovative Big Data Strategy Model will change that and will help organizations take the first steps towards their big data strategy”.

Big Data - Public Data sets - gain new insights

Public Big Data

In 2011 European Commissioner Neelie Kroes put up a proposal to open up Europe’s Public Data for everyone to use. Neelie Kroes is a strong supporter of the use of public datasets and she called governments to put online datasets that were created with public money. More and more public datasets are becoming more widely available for organisations and that thrives innovation and new solutions for (unknown) problems in the world. Big data marketplaces start to exist and organisations can buy or download for free many public data sets. Combining these with personal data will provide additional insights.

Big Data - Best Practices - learn from others

The Big Data Best Practices

At the moment, only 12% of the organisations worldwide have developed a big data strategy. In the coming years this will grow, but you can already learn from the lessons learned by the organisations that did implement a big data strategy. We collect big data best practices that can help other organisations when implementing a big data strategy. Examples of these interesting use cases start to appear in every industry and an overview of these best practices can help to drive innovation. If you have a use case yourself that you want to share, please do not hesitate to contact us.
