Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Tech Panel “Big Data” today clearly rules the web pages as market makers promote the topic at the drop of a hat. But with so much effort, and money, being spent promoting BD, is anyone actually doing anything in everyday businesses to exploit this loosely grouped family of technologies?

Most readers of The Register acknowledge there are places where their organisations can better analyse the data they hold to enable more effective, and faster, business decisions, but are we confident enough in these basic capabilities to be ready to mine Big data?

As usual, we want to hear what you think and we want to understand just how ready your organisation is to take on big data. Is this an opportunity or a challenge to far today? Is your use of relational databases on the way out or are you ramping up your analytical capabilities built on top of long established RDBMS systems?

Help us understand how emerging solutions are being used in your business and how you see them influencing your plans going forward by completing our latest Reg reader study. Is Big Data valuable or just hype?

You don’t need to be a big data or analytics expert to take part. In fact what we want is to understand how much knowledge and experience of specific technologies exists among readers and how you see ‘Big data’ and traditional data storage and manipulation solutions fitting together, if at all.
