In part five of the six part video series, The History of Big Data Analytics, we explore how product performance has transformed since the 1980’s.
In the 1980’s, the personal computer changed the world of big data analytics. As more people acquired personal computers, more parts, suppliers, and manufacturers were needed to accommodate this new demand. Additionally, a personal computer allowed consumers to begin storing and sharing their own data.
The increase in personal data was expanded by the arrival of the internet in the early 1990’s. People and companies could now share their data through an entirely new medium, which incidentally allowed customers to supply more feedback to companies about products. In turn, companies were better equipped to improve their products as customers demanded.
