Say some more about why the marriage is pending. Is that change of definitions, as some of this is pretty old. I was at Bell Labs in the 1970s/early 1980s, and Murray Hill Bldg 5 had statisticians who spent their time analyzing telephone records whose volumes certainly fit Big Data for the time, even if it wasn't called that. The Bell System tracked every trouble report, down to thing like squirrel bites and gunshots, and later we did expert systems for rummaging the data and looking for patterns. In the 1990s, Silicon Graphics was selling supercomputers to telcos and others, both for marketing analytics and fraud detection, both of which needed much statistical analysis. For some history, see: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/01/the-origins-of-big-data-an-etymological-detective-story/?_r=0 http://www.slideshare.net/amhey/big-data-yesterday-today-and-tomorrow-by-john-mashey-techviser?utm_source=slideshow03&utm_medium=ssemail&utm_campaign=share_slideshow See especially slides 22-24.
