However, it has been trapped in filing cabinets, and floppy disks, and so has been an untapped resource. Older software helped only so much. Many such applications could work only with individual databases and were often costly and difficult to use. Until very recently, such data could be used only by much larger organizations.  Now, thanks to a reduction in technology costs and new tools that display complex databases in a much simpler manner, smaller companies can benefit much more from data. Your company's databases can be cross-referenced with the expanding amount of information drawn not just from social networks, government databases, and usage patterns on mobile devices, but also from increasingly specialized information sources such as digitized transcripts of call-center interactions and sensors sending updates from various steps within a supply chain, and do so affordably. Companies ranging from established giants to startups offer affordable, cloud-based data-crunching services-which can help you get nondigitized data into data-crunchable form-and today virtually anyone can get involved in the world of Big Data. Big Data for Small Business For Dummies will explain exactly how you can understand Big Data, and use it to your advantage in order better develop new products and services and transform your small business.
