The recent advent of wearable digital devices, such as Google Glass and Apple Watch, begs an interesting question: Just how much data can we effectively access and apply in a given situation?
This question grows by orders of magnitude when applied to corporations, governments, and other large organizations. Executives, financial analysts, operations specialists and others now have huge amounts of data available, but lack effective tools to analyze that data quickly and intuitively to solve real-world problems.
When faced with critical decisions and an overwhelming volume and variety of data, how can organizations increase their situational intelligence?
This blog will explore the causes, challenges, effects, solutions and players in analyzing and transforming big data into situational intelligence. While the blog’s focus will be on the business and human aspects of situational intelligence, we’ll include discussions about the technology that can enable improvements to situational intelligence.
We welcome your comments, questions, and submissions.
