“Big Data” is being touted as the steam engine of our time. Big Data refers to a large collection of data sets too complex to be handled by traditional database management tool. Gartner has revealed in its recent study that organizations have increased their understanding of what big data is and how it could transform the business in novel ways. The new key questions have shifted to ‘What are the strategies and skills required?’ and ‘How can we measure and ensure our return on investment?’

And if used creatively and effectively by the U.S. healthcare industry, the potential value of big data is worth more than $300 billion every year according to McKinsey Global Institute.
