2.) Governance: The Big Data elephant in the room. To realize business value from big data companies need to have strong information governance and few people seem to be talking about this.

3.) Big Data and health care get engaged. How can we work smarter? How can we improve our processes? What are we leaving on the table?

4.) Teradata software provides direct 'big data' access. Teradata, a Miami Twp.-based data analytics company, on Tuesday announced that its Aster SQL-H software is the first to offer business analysts direct, self-service access to "big data" sets stored in Apache Hadoop.
