IT analytics company Splunk has received a patent for its method of organizing and presenting big data to mirror the experience of browsing links on the web. The patent validates Splunk’s unique approach to the problem of analyzing mountains of machine-generated data and hints at a future where writing big data applications doesn’t require a Ph.D.
So someone takes the philosophy of WWW and Semantic web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s linked open data star scheme, adds the BigData term and gets a patent? What’s next?
