re: What was the most over-hyped software movement? VIEW POST


Two that people still use to sell projects but aren't as shinny as the hype made them look:

  • Big Data
  • Agile

Without starting a rant —there's a lot of articles taking both sides— over agile, is one really over-turbo-hyped things.

And the case for big Data is that everyone started saying "we have a big data solution" and eventually all the big data solutions turned out to be simply dashboards reading simple databases, most of them with simple query generators


What is the difference between "big data" and "data mining"? Or is it just the same thing rebranded?


Big data is about handling lots of data, it's about volume. Data mining is about finding data, it's about source.
