As Charles Dickens wrote in A Tale of Two Cities regarding, surprisingly and with great foresight, big data analytics: “It [is] the best of times, it [is] the worst of times, it [is] the age of wisdom, it [is] the age of foolishness, it [is] the season of Light, it [is] the season of Darkness, it [is] the spring of hope, it [is] the winter of despair, we [have] everything before us, [yet it seems we have] nothing before us, [at one moment we are all going direct to the nirvana of big data analytics], we [are] all going direct the other way—in short, the period is so far like the past period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for worse, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

Tanvi Singh explores whether long-standing non-internet-based companies possess the evidence-driven culture and platforms required to derive benefit from big data tools and impact their line of business.
