By Tom Peters | December 6, 2018 3:18pm”A lot of us who are doing research about big data, like I am, have been working with big data for a long time, and I’ve been fascinated by how data has changed how we do research,” said Eric Haney, CEO of Datapoint.
“It’s just a really exciting time.”
The big question is, how can we use data to improve our lives?
And as Haney points out, the answer is “more.”
“There are a lot of different types of data that are going to be used in big data,” he said.
“There are some that we already know, some that have not been used before, some things that are not even yet well understood.”
Data that can help solve problemsHaney is not the only one looking into big data.
In January, IBM announced that it was partnering with data startup Datapatch to provide “solution-based” data analysis for business analytics.
For the company, that means making use of data to “analyze the data for answers that are more relevant to customers than to ourselves.”
The company hopes to provide data to companies that can “improve productivity, efficiency, and accuracy” by providing insights that can be “taken into account” by employees.
The partnership with Datapatcher is just one of many partnerships between the two companies.
Both companies will be releasing data on their offerings, including the fact that “both companies are working on a cloud-based platform that will allow them to provide this data to anyone in the world,” according to a press release.
For the past few years, Datapatcher has been working to bring the best data to the big data community.
“The fact that we have a product that is able to do all of this really makes us the leader in this space,” Haney said.
Haney says Datapatches mission is not to be the “Big Data evangelist,” but rather to “help companies understand their data needs and build solutions.”
For example, the company’s data analytics platform uses artificial intelligence to help organizations “explore their customer data and understand their customer experiences” in order to improve the overall performance of their operations.
This helps companies find ways to better serve customers, which is the next step in the company “long-term mission.”
“What we do is we get data from the companies, from the customers, and we get it analyzed and we use that to build solutions for customers,” Haneys CEO said.
He also points out that the company is “not going to take it personally” that other companies are looking into the same data as they do, and he thinks that this is a good thing.
“We don’t want to take the credit for a good idea, but we want to help our customers and customers help us,” Hanes said.
