UseCases

Time to time I come across different interesting scenarios and use cases of Big Data which have a direct positive impact (weather forecast) and negative impact (user surveillance) on our lives. Here are some of the ones I found too interesting to share.

If you are involved in any interesting Big Data scenarios, please let me know and I will add it to this page. You can get my email from the `About Me` section on this blog.

  1. Hi Praveen. This blog is informative in every inch. Take a bow. It's more than reading a book.

    I have attended your team's Big Data conference that's been conducted in Infosys campus last year. That's the point of inspiration for my Big Data learning.

    A big thanks for your blog.
