    Why is Big Data so Big?

    186,865 views - Posted September 25, 2013 by Rui Paiva CEO - WeDo Technologies

    What ever happened to simple Data Analytics and Business Intelligence?   Today it’s all about Big Data, but what is all the fuss really about?   The key lies in Wikipedia’s definition that “Big Data is the term for a collection of data sets so large and comp...

    Ready to Launch

    39,784 views - Posted August 20, 2013 by Ali Durmus Founding Partner, Executive Committee Member - Etiya
