Big Data is Here to Stay, and don't forget the right Metadata

With some warnings. I agree, we are never going to gather just less complex, wildly aggregated or less data.  We will error on the side of more data.  I add, we will still need to decide what to save, based on some notion of valuation, and make sure that we are careful about how we gather the data, and that the right metadata is included. Metadata is not just a time stamp and origin or author any more, it is about the additional data that will support business intelligence and predictive analytics in the future.   This is also a forecasting task that is not easy, but essential.
