Key points:

 

What is big data?

  • The use of technology and computing power to analyse large amounts of data that is being created every day

How we’re contributing to big data – everyday?

  • Each day, we all consume and create data without necessarily realising it
  • Big data touches every part of our lives and is growing exponentially – when we’re on social media, online shopping, booking holidays, searching online, taking photos and videos, using maps or playing games online

Examples of what this data does for us?

  • Tracks our digital footprint to offer tailored online shopping experiences
  • Sensors, cameras and diagnostic tools – sometimes referred to as the Internet of Things – can help companies be more efficient in their everyday processes
  • Companies use big data technology to analyse customers’ information and utilise trends and patterns to identify risks and possible fraud

Big data as an investment trend

  • As our world becomes increasingly online, we believe the big data thematic is only going to grow further
  • That is why AtlasTrend’s Big Data Fund has been constructed to capture this long-term structural trend as it includes many of the companies that are benefitting from this trend such as Amazon and Alphabet (listed parent of Google)
