That's a little ironic, given that the main promise of big data is the ability to make better business decisions based on compute-intensive analysis of massive data sets. The solution is to create a supply chain that identifiess business goals from the start -- and deploy the agile infrastructure necessary to make good on those objectives.</em></p> Big Data Big Data Wed, 16 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 New Tech Forum 240596 at http://www.infoworld.com Microsoft's new toolset brings analytics to 'ambient intelligence' http://www.infoworld.com/d/business-intelligence/microsofts-new-toolset-brings-analytics-ambient-intelligence-240576?source=rss_big_data <p>Microsoft is targeting the growing volume of data being generated by both machines and humans.
