Welcome to the first issue of Big Data Innovation in 2014.
After the success of the first year, going from an idea in January to a global magazine with a readership of thousands, we are hoping that 2014 can bring even more success.
This year we are going to bring you the the most innovative features, latest news and insightful interviews from the top mind working in data.
This starts off this month with an interview with James Rule, who was a key player in the building of the HR Analytics system at Thomson Reuters. Given the diverse nature of the business and the variety of components in this well established and famous company, this was no small achievement and we wanted to bring you his unique views.
Vipul Kashyap, Senior Director at NYU Langone Medical Center gives us his perspectives on the controversial use of data in healthcare. He argues for the existence of a healthcare learning ecosystem in order to push the healthcare industry forward and promote increased collaboration between the different parts of the healthcare system.
Marc Folch discusses how unlocking Big Data from privacy concerns should be of vital importance to companies in 2014 and how this can be a huge benefit to those who choose to do it.
We hope you enjoy this edition of the magazine and we are hoping to be able to continue bringing you the same high quality and insightful content throughout 2014.
