"Industrial Big Data" ZDNet's "Big On Data"



When people talk about Big Data, many people almost immediately think of clickstream analysis on Web sites or sentiment analysis gleaned from social media status messages.  But Big Data goes well beyond that.  In fact, it goes well beyond the purely digital realm.

Big Data for Big Manufacturing
Yesterday, I spoke with Brian Courtney, who is General Electric’s General Manager for Operations Data Management at a unit of the company called GE Intelligent Platforms.  I learned a lot from that call.

Perhaps talks of Big Data at GE will tempt you to think of Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy character in NBC’s 30 Rock, making humorous commentary about Big Data and microwaves.  But you’d be better off thinking about GE’s advertisements around its manufacture of jet engines, turbines and locomotives.
