The proliferation of social, mobile and sensor-enabled technologies, in conjunction with the unbundling of data from applications, creates new opportunities and competitive advantages for companies. In theory it sounds great. In practice, however, it causes headaches that have overwhelmed many companies.

Industry veteran Omar Tawakol, former co-founder of BlueKai and current GVP of the Oracle Data Cloud, believes the realization of big data isn’t a myth; it’s a reality he sees in action every day with customers across the globe.
