In the resultant ITwire article – ‘Big Data: It’s all about analytics & competitive advantage, and not just for dummies’ – Bloor, Chief Analyst and Co-Founder of the Bloor Group, told Dinham that “Big Data is not much more than an ‘utterly meaningless’ term created by marketers”.
However, whilst Bloor dismisses much of the hype around Big Data as marketing spin, he does admit that “companies leveraging Big Data are growing at a faster rate to their competitors and, indeed, espouses the fact that Big Data Analytics is transforming traditional business around the world.”
