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

Download information is at the bottom of the page. Note that it’s available in several e-book formats as well as in the standard PDF download.
