Data scientists and data wranglers will need to develop new meth‐ ods to analyze both the legacy data and the vast amounts of new data flooding in. Both Development and Operations will be responsible for the success of an enterprise’s big data initiative. The walls between the business, data, organizations and platform cannot exist at Internet scale. Similar to your nervous system, a big data cluster is a highly inter‐ connected platform built from a collection of commodity parts. Neu‐ rons in the human brain are the building blocks of the nervous system, but are very simple parts.

Research subjects with these pathways fully disrupted find it difficult to even choose what cereal to have for breakfast. Decision-making is a delicate balance of signals between the emotional part of the brain (amygdala) and the thinking part (ventromedial prefrontal cortex). What does good judgment have to do with big data? Everything. For organizations amped on ego and ambition, combined with the intol‐ erance for error that comes with the complexity and scale of big data, this means a lot of decisions will have to be made quickly and without all the information.
