2014 Big Data Posts - Self Service BI, Agile Data Management Practices, and Killing Data Landfills

In 2014, many of my posts on BigData were actually about "small" data management practices. Specifically, I hope these posts educated readers that tools of "Data Science 1.0" such as Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint and especially Access can disrupt - even kill - efforts to make organizations become more data driven.

In addition to calling out this problem which is something I have been doing for a couple of years now (see my classic posts on Spreadsheet Jockeys and my plea to Stop Creating More Access Databases), this year I offered solutions. Specifically, I think CIOs need to deploy Self Service BI tools and establish more modernized data management programs. I support data scientists that act like disciplined hikers, adopt agile practices, and avoid creating new data landfills.
