But the power of data analytic technologies goes far beyond these established use cases, and can be used in genealogy, law, and even pop music.
While still in its infancy, the big data technology trend has made a lot of substantial progress since it gained traction at the beginning of this decade. The year 2013 was a big year with advances being made in virtually every quarter of the space. In this feature, we take a look at some of the significant trends that have crossed our desks in the past year — wrapped up and presented to you with a pretty bow. Out with the old, in with the new — it’s the Datanami 2013 Year in Review!
