If you’re disappointed with big data, you’re not paying attention. There has been a backlash lately against big data. From O’Reilly Media to the New Yorker, from Nassim Taleb to Kate Crawford, everyone is treating big data like a piñata.

Gartner has dropped it into the “trough of disillusionment.” I call B.S. on all of it. It might be provocative to call into question one of the hottest tech movements in generations, but it’s not really fair. That’s because how companies and people benefit from big data, data science or whatever else they choose to call the movement toward a data-centric world is directly related to what they expect going in. Arguing that big data isn’t all it’s cracked up to be is a strawman, pure and simple — because no one should think it’s magic to begin with.

Network. Timeline. Video. Graphics. Business Intelligence and user adoption: A Depp-esc disaster? We’ve said it for a long time. In fact, we wrote a blog about it almost two years ago – What’s the Key Metric for Measuring BI Performance? The answer? “Simple – The rate of end-user adoption. That is, how many people in an organization who have access to BI software, actually use that software, and access the reports it generates, on a regular basis, to help them make operational and strategic business decisions.” And, much like the enduring partnership between Tim Burton and Johnny Depp – although their latest collaborative effort (Dark Shadows) received a dismal 42 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and had the LA Times wondering “has America fallen out of love with Johnny Depp?”

– Business Intelligence (BI) and sustainable widespread user adoption seem somewhat inseparable. Research and advisory firms try again… Industry research and analyst goliath, Gartner, suggests as much in its report The Consumerization of BI Drives Greater Adoption. Now back to that Aberdeen report… i. I. I. 6 Great Interactive Data Visualization Tools (Part 2) Welcome back for the second part of my series on interactive data visualization (dataviz) tools.
