The Human Face of Big Data: The Documentary

Senior Vice President, Global Field and Partner Marketing at Dell EMC

“Big Data” was not yet a household term when EMC sponsored The Human Face of Big Data more than three years ago. To help the general public understand how technology’s ability to gather, store and analyze massive amounts of information will change our lives, EMC underwrote production of the book by Rick Smolan, creator of the wildly popular “Day in the Life” series of photography books. Three years later, talk of Big Data has moved on to Data Lakes that can now bring data, analytics and applications together seamlessly, enabling organizations to run analytics across all of their data, acting on insights and building new capabilities that were unimaginable before.

To see how The Human Face of Data project has evolved, tune in to the hour-long documentary set to air tonight on PBS stations at 10pm ET (check local listings for viewing details).

One of the interesting trends of this third platform and the rapid and extensive proliferation of mobile technology that has been one of its hallmarks is the consumerization of IT. Companies are giving employees greater latitude in accessing corporate resources and data via their own personal devices (Bring Your Own Device or BYOD). (more…)

Sometimes, in the technology world, the hype wildly overstates the real power or impact of a new product or idea. But ironically, sometimes the hype does the opposite: it actually masks the real-world transformations that are being shaped by a powerful new concept in our industry. After all, nothing was more hyped than the dot-com boom, or more publicly lamented than the dot-com bust that followed. But underneath the mountains of news coverage and pundit predictions, the internet and web quietly marched on, and completely transformed how we use digital information to communicate and collaborate across our business and personal lives, even in ways the best experts of the day could not predict.
