Mar 23 10:08am Datafloq
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.

How Is Big Data Changing Supply Chain Management

Mar 23 7:45am Datafloq
In the last couple of years, big data technology was implemented in many different industries. Big data innovations have uplifted the business process to another level by introducing more predictability and by automating the decision making-process. Implementation of big data into the supply chain management has shown similar results. The use of big data technology has enabled companies to react faster to the changes within their supply chain and to drastically improve customer experience. In this article, we’re going to analyze some of the new supply trends that are directly connected with the big data technology implementation.

Time tracking data can also be used as a basis for the innovation of the supply chain, especially when it’s combined with the data coming from the social sources, like eCommerce analytics, social networks, news, weather, etc. Big data allows companies to plan their future inventory and supply routes in real time, without relying on historical data. This functionality is very important for the accuracy of the eCommerce logistics process. The biggest couriers have already replaced the outdated ERP tracking technology with the Internet of Things sensors, which can follow the whole shipment process ...Read More on Datafloq...

Virtual Reality In Educational Use: A Few Notable Examples

Mar 21 8:24am Datafloq
Back in the old days, as in a few years ago, children were taught using chalkboards and textbooks. Some lucky classes had video and social or physical interaction in their lesson plans. 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. With app development deployed towards education, bringing the sites, countries and world historic events to the classroom has become easier. ...Read More on Datafloq...

The concept of big data can seem a bit elusive to most people. There are thousands of possible applications and just when you think you have a grasp on it, something changes. But from a business and marketing perspective, it’s important that you recognize how big data is related to SEO. Google: The World’s Largest Data Corporation It’s impossible to separate big data from SEO, if for no other reason than Google is the original and largest big data organization in the world. As SEO expert Jiyan Wei explains, “They have become the institution they are today by analyzing enormous sets of data, making automated inferences, and providing intelligence back to consumers. By studying Google’s methodology and applying their findings, search professionals have been intimately involved with big data for quite some time.” When you consider that Google is the leader in the SEO industry, it becomes clear that big data and SEO will forever be intertwined. The future of search will be determined by big data, as will the manner in which businesses optimize their websites and digital content.
