One of the great thought leaders, McKinsey & Company, has easily accessible content on Big Data. Its new research report, Big Data: The next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity, delivers a litany of proof points on the massive increases in data flowing worldwide. The full report is available in several ebook formats. If that’s too much, just download the exec summary, which itself is pretty solid. The report is useful for techies and non-techies keen to understand the business impact of Big Data within globalizing economic structures.
