Your company is doomed to fail if 'the biggest jerk at the table' makes all the decisions in spite of comprehensive data analysis. EMC and its customers are taking analytics seriously, CIO.com columnist Rob Enderle says. You should, too. It's a lesson Mitt Romney learned the hard way.
Walt Hauck, the straight-talking CIO of Dun & Bradstreet, says big data represents a corporate turning point this decade no less disruptive and revolutionary than the Internet in the 1990s. Find out why Hauck thinks the big data 'haves' will thrive while the 'have-nots' struggle.

In-memory analytics, like virtualization and the cloud, is an old idea that's been given new life. In this case, the combination of big data, inexpensive commodity storage and parallel processing make it possible to analyze terabytes of data without slowing systems to a crawl.
Hadoop is nearly synonymous with the analysis of big data. The Hortonworks Data Platform on Windows is significant as it means that companies lacking Linux expertise will finally be able to benefit from the big data analysis platform, which has been out of the reach of Windows shops.
To make more efficient use of data and improve data protection, take a holistic approach to information governance-one that focuses attention on the most sensitive data while removing impediments to sharing.
Technology trends can come and go with little more than a (Google) Wave, but seven trends of 2012 are here to stay. Some came out of nowhere, while others emerged after years of development.
