There is a lot of buzz lately about big data. Almost every vendor and most pundits seem to be talking about big data -- and telling us we need it. While I am seeing a lot of hype and build-up, I'm not seeing a whole lot of useful advice or helpful tips about *how* to actually leverage big data. Where I work, we've been leveraging big data for over a year now (we just never called it that). I see this as an opportunity. We've developed some effective techniques for slicing through big data and producing a reasonable volume of highly actionable alerting from over 4 billion network events a day. It's time to take this show on the road and share the information. I've put in some papers for some upcoming conferences -- wish me luck!
