How this affects businesses

In 2014, privacy and other legal concerns could come to a head as more people see Big Data’s real impact on their lives. The adoption of mobile devices, drones and the Internet of Things data will only add to the problem by generating geospatial, sensor data and pictures into the mix, according to an IEEE Computer Society article.

What businesses can do

Hold a sit-down discussion with corporate counsel about compliance with privacy laws, and determine who bears legal responsibility if data is wrong as well as who owns the data and intellectual property rights, recommends Brooke L. Daniels, who works in the Global Sourcing practice at the law firm of Pillsury in Washington, D.C.

Don’t just discuss the existing law; find out what the legal experts are predicting, and prepare.

Evaluate potential public relations and marketing concerns about “not creeping out customers,” as Daniels puts it.

Big Data talk has dominated 2013 to such an extent that sometimes it’s hard to imagine we’ll have much else to say about it in 2014.

That’s unlikely to be the case, however, as other trends — mobile data, the Internet of Things, and hybrid cloud — will launch further Big Data adoption. Hadoop, especially, will become more important as vendors explore its potential as a platform for building new solutions.

While the potential of Big Data is still too fluid to pin down, the business challenges it will create are already coming into focus.
