Four myths of Big Data Analytics:

  1. If you want to build a big data system you have to use Hadoop–way too narrow of a perspective
  2. Big data always provides better answers–not always true
  3. Data Science is a science–if you only focus on the science, you are going to fail
  4. Actionable insights is the goal for big data analytics or any analytics–that’s just plain wrong.
