Top Big Data and Analytics Trends for 2015
Summary:Here are the interesting Big Data and Analytics trends to be looking out for in 2015. Here's a list of what I find are the most interesting trends in analytics in 2015. Why the italics? because most of what will happen this year can be summarized with a single word: more.
Big Data: Ready to Fill Your Data Lake?

The frustration is two-fold; one side being that the statement is never useful for a developer tasked with debugging. My responses usually include, "How is it wrong?", "Can you provide more information?", and "What do you expect to see?"
Google is Killing Off Google Maps Engine. What does this Mean?

For enterprise customers, Google Maps Engine was a nice way to create a graphical interface to deliver Google Maps API into more hands of enterprise users in addition to developers.
5 Reasons Your CEO Prefers Data On A Dashboard
The days of CEOs waiting hours for the delivery of a paper report are long gone. Now, many forward-thinking executives are making use of visual dashboards to gain insight into their company, rather than relying on CIOs or IT professionals to do it for them.
