Big data analytics from Henry Ford to 2014

    By: Mr. Adrian Bridgwater on Aug 23, 2013

    Data analytics was born among the American industrialists of the late 1800s.

    Henry Ford is said to have studied and measured the pacing of the processes down the assembly line when the Model T was produced back in 1908.

    Before Ford, the American industrialist Frederick Winslow Taylor carried out time management analysis to improve efficiency during his time at Pennsylvania's Bethlehem Steel back in 1898.

    Big 'big data' (big(s) plural intended)

    Fast forward to 2013 and all the big 'big data' (big(s) plural intended) vendors have a data analytics platform of some shape or form.

    Among the most voluble in this space is perhaps SAP with its explanation on in-memory computing efficiency to serve data analytics for "operational insight" (as they say) in the workplace.

    So work-time analytics became process analytics became data analytics became data analytics became in-memory data analytics...

    ... became real-time in-memory data analytics.

    But this plateau wont keep us in check for long. Next we have to incorporate the concept of situation-based analytics.
