Last week we were asked to discuss where some of todays technologies are going to be in five years. My group and I were given “Big Data” as subject.

What we came up with was that in five years, Big Data is likely to have increased to an even larger amount than what we have today.  This would probably lead to a greater need of storage systems, thus new research concerning this. It could also imply new job opportunities as well as new user platforms. What was discussed was that in health care, where Big Data is used more and more, it could lead to better tracking of patient, doctors and diseases. However, an increase in Big Data, and the use of it, will most probably come with some or several problems, especially concerning personal data.

The task however, was not to give the right answer to where Big Data will be in five years (who could really?), but it was to guess and anticipate. If you are an entrepreneur, this is one of the basics to have a chance to success. To have an idea of what the market will look like in five years, and to base your product (or idea o product) on this, is what can make you competitive.

One Thought on “Big Data in five years?

    Nice post Catrin – thanks!

    Was wondering two questions after reading it:
    1) What do you guys think of the storage limit capabilities that we are nearly facing now? I was thinking about the Moore’s law 🙂

    2) How do you think people are going to welcome the introduction of big data in Healthcare?
    On my second point, I was thinking more about ethics (that might has to be considered by an entrepreneur when starting his/her company?). A good example is when, to overcome the issue of baby kidnappings in hospitals, some institutions started to put barcodes on babies bracelets. Some people have seen this as a threat to the human dignity – treating people as selling object.
