What’s going on in the data world right now, and how will it impact the market in 2018? There are the obvious, banner headlines, of course: AI is everywhere and will change everything; Enterprises continue to move their infrastructure – and data – to the cloud; GDPR will make data protection every company’s priority. But you knew all that. And maybe you were a bit skeptical of the grandiose claims anyway.

Every year, industry pundits hypothesize on the many ways big data can improve healthcare delivery and the overall healthcare system. Yet, adoption of big data in healthcare fails to keep pace with other industries.

Back in 2004, Europe created a new set of rules for smoother stock trading called the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, or MiFID. In 2007, new regulations called MiFID I went into effect designed to increase transparency and competition among the various European financial trading exchanges.

Every year, more organizations in various industries take steps to maximize and leverage big data to improve business processes and stay ahead of the competition. Furthermore, emerging technology trends continue to prompt new ways to derive insights from data.

Data security has never been as important as it is today. At Datameer, the security of your data is as important to us as it is to you. This is why companies working with very sensitive customer data – some of the world’s largest banks, healthcare insurers and telecommunications firms such as Citi, HSBC, Aetna, Anthem, Optum and Sprint/Pinsight Media – all trust Datameer for their data preparation and exploration needs.

Big data is really “the little engine that could.” While this may seem like an oxymoron, allow me to explain. When broken down, big data is really just a collection of seemingly infinite small details and information points in different silos. But all of these data points are really part of a much greater puzzle that, once “solved” and articulated, has the power to fuel digital transformation.

2017 has been a big year for big data industry trends and for the Datameer team as well.
