Nicholas Goodman’s (LucidDB) sharp vision about Business Intelligence on Big Data:
It’s just a bunch of technology that propeller heads (I am one myself) sling code with that crunch data to get data into custom built reporting type applications. Unlike SQL databases, they’re NOT ACCESSIBLE to analysts, and reporting tools for easy report authoring and for businesses to quickly and easily write reports.
Until businesses get to ACTUALLY USE Big Data systems (and not via proxy built IT applications) it’s value to the business will be minimal. When businesses get to use Big Data systems directly; there will be dramatic benefit to the business in terms of timeliness, decision making, and insights.
A must read.

Being able to bring together both structured and unstructured data—it doesn’t really matter if it is BigData or not—, query it with a language that is familiar to many developers and that had tons of tools available represents the future of polyglot persistence.
