Re: Big Data

by RS_Darwin In reply to Information Regarding Big ...

Big data is a unique and highly effective tool, which help companies make better, more informed decisions as shown in the following examples:

1. Starbucks: Starbucks uses big data to determine the potential success of every new location prior to expanding their operations. With location-based data, traffic data, demographic data, and customer data, they’re able to estimate the general success rate of each new store, so they can choose locations based on the propensity toward revenue growth, thus decreasing the financial risk of each new store.

2. The Heathman Lodge, located in Vancouver, Wash., is a hotel that was experiencing some major difficulties in establishing optimal rates for hotel rooms. They lacked the data that was critical to informing rate charges for clients, resulting in the hotel charging less than each room was worth. With big data management, they are able to see the ways that holidays, weekends, local events, and seasonal changes impact the demand on their rooms. This enables them to adjust room rates based on the fluctuating demands of customers, thus significantly enhancing their revenue potential.

These companies are just some of those businesses which utilize CTI software from companies like Tenfold to capture 100% of customer interactions and predict customer behavior along with other activities based on previously acquired data through interactions. See here:

Big Data is a pretty interesting field, but I believe if you want to go the Hadoop route, you might not be the best fit considering you're bad at programming. Maybe Business intelligence as it's a happy medium. Doing some data mining stuff with SSAS seems similar.
