A manager who understands the promise and limits of big data can obtain improved results just by knowing the limits of data and statistics and then ensuring that any analysis includes measures to separate wheat from chaff. Paradoxically, the flaws of big data originate from the unique strengths of big data systems. The first among these strengths is the ability to pull together large numbers of diverse variables and seek out relationships between them. This enables an organization to find relationships within its data that would have otherwise remained undiscovered.

This sounds bizarre and confusing in the abstract, but you are familiar with it in the concrete. When you run a web search on your cell phone, your phone is not querying its own indexes of web pages, and it is not running the algorithms that underpin the search. The phone and associated software conduct basic processing of your search, or query, and then pass these data to a server cluster located elsewhere. They then receive the output of that cluster’s data processing and translate it back into a convenient layout that can be represented on your display.

To explore this development, let us start with the growth of processing power. MOORE’S LAW In 1965, Gordon Moore—who would go on 3 years later to cofound the company that would become Intel—published a paper titled, “Cramming More Components onto Integrated Circuits” in the journal Electronics. Though a The Mother of Invention’s Triplets • 23 mere four pages in length, the paper laid out the case for the now famous Moore’s law. It is an intriguing read—after discussing advances in the manufacture of integrated circuits, Moore covers their advantages in terms of cost and reliability, the latter demonstrated by the inclusion of integrated circuits in NASA’s Apollo space missions (it was Apollo 11 that landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon).
