About the Edition

By one estimate, 90 percent of all of the data in history was created in the last two years. In 2014, International Data Corporation calculated the data universe at 4.4 zettabytes, or 4.4 trillion gigabytes. That much information, in volume, could fill enough slender iPad Air tablets to create a stack two-thirds of the way to the moon. Coal, iron ore, and oil were the key productive assets that fueled the Industrial Revolution. The vital raw material of today"s information economy is data. In Data-ism, New York Times technology reporter Steve Lohr explains how big-data technology is ushering in a revolution in proportions that promise to be the basis of the next wave of efficiency and innovation across the economy. But more is at work here than technology. Big data is also the vehicle for a point of view, or philosophy, about how decisions will be -- and perhaps should be -- made in the future. This new revolution could change decision making -- by relying more on data and analysis, and less on intuition and experience -- and transform the nature of leadership and management. Focusing on young entrepreneurs at the forefront of data science as well as on giant companies such as IBM that are making big bets on data science for the future of their businesses, Data-ism is a field guide to what is ahead, explaining how individuals and institutions will need to exploit, protect, and manage data to stay competitive in the coming years.

I read Steve Lohr's book Data-ism with keen interest. The author is a noted reporter for The Times that writes on technology. I was looking forward to the book and found it an interesting read. However, it's a bit patchy in certain places and tends to focus specifically on one point or illustration.4/5(29). Data-ism is a recently coined term for a kind of data philosophy or ideology. Various sources attribute this particular term to David Brooks, a prominent political commentator and writer at The New York Times. In comments about an overriding data philosophy, Brooks mentions data-ism as an obsession with data that assumes a number of things.
