The development of techniques for gaining insight from such information provides potential benefits in such arenas as business, science, and public policy. This special issue of the IBM Journal emphasizes applications, analytics, software, and hardware technologies that form the foundational building blocks for massive-scale analytics and the processing of Big Data.
