Big Data Is Good: A CEO’s Analysis

I believe that big data is good. Good for our economy; good for people and good for society. I know this defies the newspaper headlines and I am not diminishing some real concerns out there. However, the good that data is doing now – and the promise it holds for the future – is remarkable.
