The Big Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS) market is one to definitely keep an eye on in the coming years. It’s been quickly growing as more and more companies understand the value that big data solutions can bring to their individual organizations. This is especially true among mid-size businesses which likely didn’t have the budget or resources to invest in things like constructing their own data centers or employing the best data scientists. With the rise of BDaaS, all of the potential found within big data is now at their fingertips in much the same way other cloud services have led to more opportunities and capabilities. While a company may want to work with a BDaaS provider, choosing one can prove to be difficult. The BDaaS market is changing, at time rapidly so, making the decision a challenging one. Though the market is evolving, there are a number of things you can look for when you’re considering a BDaaS provider. The first thing you’ll want to do is evaluate your company’s needs.

Now it seems that virtual reality application development has found at least one permanent home, in the classroom. Google has a new platform called Google Expeditions. Its purpose is to bring virtual reality to the classroom using the Google Cardboard headset. Some teams will also teach the teacher, going to classrooms to show instructors how to implement the program. Kits are available for purchase already on the Google site. The virtual reality app developers plan to have students and teacher share a visit to locations not easily explained through textbooks. It's also a perfect venue for the teacher to lecture while she shares the same view, selecting specific topics in the view or directing kids' attention to areas they'd miss on a real field trip. Although field trips are fun, they tend to be a cumbersome process for educators. Kids miss school time and parents need to give special permission.
