Empowering great ideas with Big Data Analytics

Big data and the analytics associated with it are reshaping our future. However, the best tools are not always affordable to the best ideas. Big data analytics, especially the best of breed ones, are expensive.

As a company that provides this type of services, we had an idea outside of the box.

What if an organization that could really benefit the human condition had access to these tools?

How can we help bring them within their budgetary reach?

Now let me point out that we are not the Gates Foundation or some other deep pockets philanthropic group. Nor are we some mega corporation will cash to burn. Our company, Millennia, is just a small IT services firm with a lot of heart and ingenuity.

So here’s a brief synopsis of what we have in mind:

• An organization with a real need to access and analyze big data to produce benefits for humanity, the planet, etc. My guideline here is we will not work for political groups, hate groups, or anything that even remotely can be discriminatory in nature to anyone.

• Determine a project scope, including the anticipated outcomes (that will change) & benefits

• Determine the costs, write the proposal, and propose it for crowd source funding

• If awarded, we will get the project up and running within a few months. There will be ongoing costs associated with the project, so the organization has to be aware of them and able to handle them.

If anyone would like to discuss this further, please hit me up.

  • Jul 9 2013: I may be off base with the following, but you were fairly vague in describing your capabilities and what you can offer. So I figured... someones gotta ask.

    Are we to assume you have the capabilities of modeling provided data, including faceted navigation and browsing? Or are you primarily offering server hosting, and data transfer with obvious support?

    Also, are you capable of supporting Cloud based storage in tandem with any existing geospatial database systems?

    This line of questioning could go on for days...

    One last question... what capabilities do you provide? lol No seriously though... With out divulging too much information, is it possible for lets say 5000 users to be constantly uploading data, retaining geographical and other relevant information, and then to have the ability to analyze said data in real time?

    I apologize if these questions aren't appropriate for what you're proposing.
