McKinsey Global Institute Big Data Report

The McKinsey Global Institute, the business and economics research arm of the McKinsey & Co. consulting firm, has recently issued a report that will be of interest to some readers of CNI-Announce titled “Big Data: The Next Frontier for Innovation, Competition and Productivity”, which reviews some of the techniques used in data-intensive scholarship, as well as other data-intensive analytic methods, and explores their applications to areas like government, healthcare, consumer retail, and manufacturing. The report includes a discussion of estimated payoffs from these new approaches, as well as some consideration of policy issues.

The report can be found at
