A great matrix of the different analytics use cases across industries in Hortonworks’s post “Enterprise Hadoop and the Journey to a Data Lake“:
The data type column section covers multiple dimensions of data. And the authors took a conservative approach for the structured and unstructured categories (in the sense that they marked very few categories as unstructured).
A couple of interesting exercises that can be done using this matrix as an input:
figure out how adding data from different categories to a specific use case would benefit it. One obvious example is: how would Telecom companies benefit from adding to their infrastructure analysis social data?
Building on the above, decide what tools exist to help with this extra scenario.
can one use case from an industry be applied to a different industry to disrupt it?
What would be the quickest road to accomplish it?
