Video: 2012 in Review – The Rebranding of Big Data

In this video, Wikibon analyst Jeff Kelly discusses the re-branding of big data in mainstream media, where it most commonly referred to as “analytics.”

Kelly says that this is a rather positive change, and an inventible one at that; furthermore, he believes that the term may be dropped altogether in the future. His reasoning is that data in general is getting ‘big’, and sooner or later there will no longer be a need to make a distinction.
