IDG Enterprise's 2015 Big Data and Analytics survey shows that the number of
organizations with deployed/implemented data-driven projects has increased by
125% over the past year. The momentum continues to build.
Big Data as a concept is characterized by 3Vs: Volume, Velocity, and Variety.
Big Data implies a huge amount of data. Due to the sheer size, Big Data tends
to be clumsy. The dominating implementation solution is Hadoop, which is
batch based. Not just a handful of companies in the market merely collect
lots of data with noise blindly, but they don't know how to cleanse it, let
alone how to transform, store and consume it effectively. They simply set up
a HDFS cluster to dump the data gathered and then label it as their "Big
Data" solution. Unfortunately, the consequence of what they did actually
marks the death of Big Data.
Collecting a lot of data is litera... (more)
I will present a tutorial on the service-oriented model-driven architecture
design for cloud solutions in the upcoming International Conference on Web
Services (ICWS 2009). Please join the session to explore the state-of-the-art
approach to effectively developing cloud services in a systematic fashion.

As we are approaching the year end in 2013, we have seen significant growth
of big data this year in the rear mirror. Looking forward, what will be the
forecast for the upcoming new year? Where are technologies headed in 2014?
There are many interesting movements and activities in the technology
frontier. It is exciting that more open source innovations are steadily
changing the paradigm. The following items are predicted to be the Top 5 hot
areas next year: Connection, Hybrid, Analytics, SDX, and Mobile (CHASM).
Connection: The Internet of everything enables people, devices and e... (more)
In a recent panel session I chaired, a question was raised from audience in
the Q&A part about how to relate Big Data and Big Service. There are
basically two aspects in this: Big Data as a Service, and Big Data for Big
Big Data as a Service: BDaaS is to a large extent Big Data cloudification. We
build Big Data as a capability to collect, transform, import, store, process,
query, analyze, explore, predict, export, search,visualize,
and display a large amount of data. Then we expose this capability as a
service in a SaaS fashion, so users can leverage it to quickly solve... (more)
A capability model is a structure that represents the core abilities and
competencies of an entity (department, organization, person, system, and
technology) to achieve its objectives, especially in relation to its overall
mission and functions.
The Big Data Capability Model (BDCM) is defined as the key functionalities in
dealing with Big Data problems and challenges.
It describes the major features, behaviors, practices and processes in an
organization, which can reliably and sustainably produce required outcomes
for Big Data demands. BDCM consist of the following elements:
