I’m flogging their content on my dime, despite their firewall. 😉 Go figure.

Will the trough of disillusionment with Big Data be mostly due to lack of meaning? Lack of integration (which depends on meaning)? Lack of return (which depends on integration and meaning)?

Or some other cause? Such as visualizing data as a replacement for the meaning of data. None of the better visualization experts would so advise but is your visualization vendor one of them?
