There's a great deal of talk in the media today about Big Data and justifiably so. Technology has

now made it possible not only to manage extremely large databases real time but also to draw meaning from unstructured data such as customer comments and complaints and video records. None of this was possible only a few years ago. For the posts these are technology changes that could prove revolutionary.

What's more, the concept of an Internet of things is already becoming a reality and promises to add to the opportunities and challenges posed by big data. Few institutions touch as many people, places and things as do the posts. The technologies that can draw meaning from these billions of touch points will be transformational for businesses throughout the world.
