The Sentient Enterprise

Oliver Ratzesberger gave a good lecture, entitled The Sentient Enterprise, published by Teradata in its YouTube channel. It's worth watching!

Ratzesberger presents the evolutionary journey of analytics capabilities that begins with today’s Agile Data Warehouse and culminates in the Sentient Enterprise. The Sentient Enterprise is an enterprise that can listen to data, conduct analysis and make autonomous decisions at massive scale in real-time. The Sentient Enterprise can listen to data to sense micro-trends. It can act as one organism without being impeded by information silos. It can make autonomous decisions with little or no human intervention. It is always evolving, with emergent intelligence that becomes progressively more sophisticated. Ratzesberger also presents a framework to assess your organization’s progress along this journey and “next practices” that business leaders can harness to unlock the full potential of Big Data and analytics.

Big Data in Healthcare: Hype and Hope on the Path to Personalized Medicine

I watched a video with an interesting panel on Big Data and Healthcare, recorded at the 2014 Digital Health Conference, entitled Big Data in Healthcare: Hype and Hope on the Path to Personalized Medicine, moderated by Bonnie Feldman.


As the author of “Big Data in Healthcare Hype and Hope”, Dr. Feldman has interviewed over 180 emerging tech and healthcare companies, always asking, “How can your new approach help patients?” Her research shows that data, as an enabling tool, has the power to give us critical new insights into not only what causes disease, but what comprises normal. Despite this promise, few patients have reaped the benefits of personalized medicine. The panel discuss the evolving health data ecosystem and how big data is being leveraged for research, discovery, clinical trials, genomics, and cancer care.
