Practical Limits of Big Data

We just got hit with the second snow storm in 5 days. The forecast called for 14-20 inches of snow. I just got done blowing the snow off the driveway and it looks more like 5 inches of accumulation. I am happy that I did not have to remove 20 inches of snow.

I am also not complaining about the forecast because I know there are practical limits to predicting anything. There are so many factors that go into forecasting weather none of which anyone can control.

A good reminder when considering what (if anything) big data can do for your business.
