Gearing up for the Big Data Marketplace
After the advent of online stores, the convenience of buying products sitting at home seems to be the driving force behind their success. Another key advantage to consumers is the variety of items available – there is almost nothing they can’t find and buy online. Marketplaces only make it easier as they make goods available on a single platform. We are rapidly moving into the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), where data and connectivity are vital. To accommodate the rapid inflow of data from multiple sources, data is moving towards becoming a commodity, which would be traded like any other product or service. After experiencing the success of online consumer marketplaces, we are paving the way for Big Data marketplaces to provide convenience to data users.
