The author explores the relationship between the two concepts by comparing and contrasting them in the context of a connected world where information technologies are perpetually evolving.
By defining Big Data and Smart Data through the use concrete examples, the author demystifies these concepts and establishes them as real and current topics in the field of Business Intelligence, as well as within the computer industry.
Using a didactic and progressive approach, whilst avoiding technical language where possible, this books aims to spark the interest of both general and more specialist readers by discussing Big Data and Smart Data as processes involving great creativity, in terms of both the architecture supporting the system and its implementation within business processes.
