A Dear Walk Down Memory Lane With Big Data

Lava Kafle’s social media updates keeps me informed on the progress of Deer Walk Inc. Deer Walk Inc is a software development company focused on maximizing the ability of the healthcare industry to find strategic and actionable meaning in Big Data.

Recently, I clicked on his link to a Deer Walk video that sent me on a dear flashback.  “Also, there were conflicts that could never be properly resolved because only bits and pieces of information were available at any given time. We were trying to put together a puzzle with missing pieces and no picture of what the end product was even supposed to look like. ... these tools reminded me of the systems I had used in the late 1980s.”  Al Hardy, 2012

I will not steal the thunder from Deer Walk's video, but it gets a hardy ain’t that the truth from me.  I will say that precise and consistent data collection over time points to trends, helps maximize outputs, and empowers people from the basement to the C-Suite.   All these have positive effects on competitiveness, organizational effectiveness, and even the workplace environment.
