I work for a Fortune 50 company and we are all over this. Good career advice for people to get into this field. Huge opportunities!

The most important part of the equation is having executives move on the information in a timely manner. Too many get "analysis paralysis".

Shouldn't this headline read, "cash in?" "Cache" means a reserve, something stored away. If this is meant to be a pun, in the sense that the data is something stored away, the word should be in quotes so we see you're being whimsical and not mis-using a word.

This kind of stuff just makes me tired. It's a neverending campaign to separate people from their money by selling more junk. I've already hit the breaking point. I now delete every advertisement message and I will never click on an ad on a website. It's just quicksand and we're all drowning in it.

Great article! Yes, go get a degree in this field, it will only be gaining momentum. Of course Oracle is all over this, there are HUGE profits to be made and they are charging an astronomical amount because they can. Silicon Graphics (SGI) is another company with a large local presence that has been working with big data since the late 80's. Check them out. There are many other big data players out there as well. Do your research. Sometimes the 800 lb gorilla get that way because people don't realize there are better options.

This is a huge topic right now! There is a lawyer in town (Tim Keller at Lindquist & Vennum) that writes a really interesting blog on this exact topic. It's called "Big Data and the Law".
