Q: How can Big Data be used to improve products and services?
A: We’ve been using data analysis to do targeted marketing and to create better products and services for years—so what does Big Data bring to the party? I think it brings four things: the ability to record and analyze “micro-transactions,” analyzing machine-to-machine transactions to improve products, the ability to understand human interactions, and the ability to store more normal transactions longer and analyze them—and act on them—quickly. Because our products are now global, and because the web makes positive and negative feedback loops against our product so fast, we … have to increasingly rely upon a rich set of data to help us target our marketing and improve our products and services.
