The power of real-time decisions

In combat situations, the effectiveness of a decision is directly impacted by the speed with which it's delivered, as these situations often change rapidly. Waiting for information necessary to make such a decision can cost lives. Throughout the Middle East and Central Asia, defense organizations could swiftly move information from its point of origin to decision makers and other analysts.

For enterprises, being able to quickly share – and quickly understand – Big Data, and cross-reference it with other Big Data learnings already on hand, allows organizations to establish the validity of the reporting and determine next steps. Acceleration of the delivery, aggregation and visualization of data is necessary to get the largest return on investment. The idea of quarterly charts is becoming more archaic, as technology, such as geospatial mapping, offers the ability to adjust the moment the market changes.

It's no mystery that Big Data has the power to solve a number of known problems and unlock new ways of doing business. What is a mystery – for many organizations – is how to take advantage of the voluminous quantity of unstructured data. International Data Corporation forecasts that the Big Data technology and services market will grow at a 27 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to $32.4 billion through 2017 – or about six times the growth rate of the overall information and communication technology (ICT) market.

While the commercial sector still struggles with how to capitalize on Big Data, military and intelligence organizations have utilized geospatial mapping as a way to corral Big Data and harness its power. In fact, according to Thermopylae, the lessons learned by the public sector may offer tremendous insight into the enterprise.
