Prepare Your Business for the Big Data Revolution

Big data has graduated over a few short years from an esoteric term of elite technorati to a household phrase found frequently on the front page.

Likewise, any software product that collects, stores or analyzes data is now invariably described as a big data solution.

Many businesses claim they have been busy over the past two years developing and implementing records and information management strategies. But scratch the surface and you find many of those strategies aren't especially effective.

One sure way to keep investors interested in and buying your shares is to put up accelerating revenue growth quarter after quarter. That’s exactly what data visualization solutions specialist Tableau Software did in 2013: top-line growth climbed from 62 percent in the first quarter to 71 percent in the second quarter, accelerated to 90 percent in the third quarter and closed the year with fourth-quarter growth of 95 percent.

Tableau went public last May at $31 a share, opened for trading its first day at $47 and finished 2013 at $68.93. The stock late last month hit a new all-time high of $102.37, up 230 percent from the IPO price.

Today, at SXSW, Box CEO Aaron Levie revealed that Ashton Kutcher (yes, the Ashton Kutcher) and Guy Oseary (Madonna’s manager) have invested in his company. The investment happened in December, but why announce it then when you can do it just before IPO-time?
