Microsoft’s Cautious Big Data Vision
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella kicked off this morning’s Microsoft Big Data event in San Francisco with talk of “ambient intelligence,” the need for a data culture in the enterprise, and something called the data dividend.
“The era of ambient intelligence has begun, and we are delivering a platform that allows companies of any size to create a data culture and ensure insights reach every individual in every organization,” Nadella said. The “data dividend formula,” he continued, is “data plus analytics plus people at speed.”
