Big Data Quarterly Spring 2016

Cover: Big Data Quarterly Spring 2016

The Spring 2016 issue includes articles on governance, risk management, adoption, cloud computing, data visualization, and Hadoop today. Big Data Quarterly 2016 is published by Information Today Inc.

The cover, which illustrates the convergence of IoT and Big Data, delivers the issues’s single most helpful message: risk management is central.

Both Big Data and IoT are concepts that make many veteran computer specialists cringe. Very Large Databases, distributed computing, sensor systems, embedded systems — these are not new and overlap greatly with these two new “disciplines.” But those same specialists understand that hype and media-driven terminology has a sociological purpose that is at least as important as its technical substance.
