This article takes part from the interview series with our speakers for this year edition of Big Data Week. Enjoy Emma’s thoughts on big data. 1. While Big Data is already a buzz term, what does it actually mean for you? (an old question with a fresh answer) Big data means a plethora of information coming from a variety of touchpoints.
