Big data experts you should know
If content is king, is big data god?
This question remains so unfathomable and sacred for many companies. On the other hand, there are a number of big data experts who can demonstrably bear this title. But the truth is, big data definitely has the potential to grow your company's annual revenue, and it will likely soon be a permanent fixture on your balance sheet. Big data itself is nothing new. However, the handling of collected customer and company data is new.
But Big data, in English “large amount of data”, is only as good as how you evaluate this data. A bundle of codes in your company's management cloud does not make your management tools smarter. Of course, the goal should be to make these numbers useful.

Networking is part of the intelligent management. In total, there are “only” 42 big data experts you should know. Indeed, that is not a large number, and it is quite a manageable task. Among them are scientists, journalists and entrepreneurs who have been dealing with the topic of big data for a long time and thus ensure with their own hands that the use of big data brings exactly what it promises.
