Understanding Big Data for Industrial Innovation and Design: The Missing Information Systems Perspective

widespread use and adoption of big data applications is unlikely ever to go beyond the pages of policies, academic papers, and speculative industrial articles. The real world of government, industry, and business is a pragmatic one, driven by business value, efficiency, and competition. If the added value of big data applications and services cannot be clearly established beyond the realm of speculation and theory, then its survival is doomed. The Need for New Agendas in Information Systems Some attempt to address the set of basic questions posed above is crucial if

As we wanted to test the template of EURACT Educational Agenda ( 2 ) on the case of education with movies, we used a pragmatic method of selection of movies, based on trainers’ opinions. The aim was not to
