It takes all types of data to discover the gold mine in your enterprise

“Is your Big Data a gold mine or garbage dump,” asks Brian Weiss, VP, HP Autonomy in his Big Data session at HP Discover. Weiss explains that enterprises need to be able to look at all types of data with context to glean actionable, meaningful insight – even for a simple phone call. You can capture different data elements about the phone call like the date, time, duration etc. But what was the prevailing mindset during the conversation? Was the caller (think customer) angry? How about having a solution to look at both the structured metadata about the phone call as well as the unstructured sentiment. Voila: HPExploreCloud - A solution that can discover the gold mine in your enterprise.

NASCAR and HP make social media matter for their customers

Flipping the remote, I see an advertisement on the TV where NASCAR CMO, Steve Phelps describes the NASCAR Fan and Media Engagement Center. In Phelps’ words, as he explains in this CNBC interview on Squawk Box, it is an enormously powerful tool that processes Big Data for NASCAR to take the right actions. This powerful solution is enabled by technology from HP, who provided the tools that can glean the intelligence from social media, the hardware that enables complex, real-time analytics as well as the services that bring it all together. NASCAR and HP make social media matter for their customers. Let’s see why.

Honey, it’s time to shrink the data

It's time to build a better enterprise. Together.” That was the key message I took away from HP Discover 2013 in Las Vegas. The Vice President of HP Enterprise Services, Mike Nefkens, characterized this very well in his keynote. Enterprises need partners they can work with, as well as tools that can be applied to realize business value from information. In order to realize that business value, enterprises must work with data that matters. And to get to data that matters, it's even more important to get rid of data that doesn't.

Honey, it's time to shrink the data.

The world of unstructured data at your fingertips

My spouse, a child-care worker, is always fascinated by how a tiny tot can mold clay into any action figure they choose. I’m fascinated by our sophomore in college as he proudly shows off a miniature replica of an architectural marvel he produced, using 3D printing technologies. What's interesting here is that it takes complex modeling software and innovative 3D printing techniques for machines to do what little children can do using their bare hands. It’s time we turned the tables on computers. Wouldn’t it be nice if we were able to mold graphical images in three dimensions to get the results we want — just like molding clay? Well, look no further and leap to this device from Leap Motion.

Information is most valuable — when delivered on time

  • When it comes to applying economics to the most valuable asset in the enterprise, timely availability of the relevant information is vital. The same information may not be as applicable if it is presented outside the critical time window without context. For example, knowing where your favorite restaurant is located becomes meaningful when you are hungry. There are multiple time dimensions when it comes to the systemic delivery of information through various channels — including desktop devices of record, mobile BYOD devices of engagement and of course, printers.
