Age of Enlightenment - Data Revolution

We are in the midst of a Data Revolution.

A modern day Age of Enlightenment.

People are getting deep into the data.

Trying to find the magical insight that will promote their business to become huge success.

Data has been around for a long time.

However, only recently has data exploded and cost reduced.

Everyone's on board to ride this wave of analysis.

And for me, being there in the mid 1990's writing SQL and providing reports, it seemed very few others were doing reports at that time.

The number of Business Intelligence developers have sky rocketed.

There's more competition, however, there's more opportunity.

And data analysis has grown as well as splintered.

So many facets of data and ways to slice, dice, visualize, ETL, Dashboards, Scorecards, quite mind boggling.

Now add in Big Data, Unstructured Data, Data stored in Memory.

There's no way to keep up.

I say we are going through a Data Renaissance never seen before.

So sit down, hold on and get ready for the ride of your life.
