I wish I had access to all that Big Data. I'd know what to do with some of it. Not all of it. But certainly some of it. I think good analysts and decision makers would too. That's where I agree with Lewis. Funny enough I was reading an article in the Financial Times (12/13/2013) which explored a conversation between analysts across the Atlantic. Seems they had the LeT data collected from faxes but it was all in Farsi and Arabic. They couldn't do anything with the data since they didn't speak the languages. Hopefully the IT vendors don't pitch more technology innovation to solve that.
