Big data is slowly but surely changing the way companies do business. Here's a look at 10 trends shaping big data and the future of business.

There Are More Actual Production Big Data Projects Test-bed projects have dominated the big data industry for the past several years, but these days there are a lot more actual production projects, says Ron Bodkin, CEO and founder of Think Big, a big data consulting firm. For now, he says, these projects are largely about achieving data scalability and cost containment, like building a data lake, but the innovators who got started early are beginning to turn their attention to leveraging their new analytics capabilities for business transformation. "They're spending a lot less time chasing down data and a lot more time actually looking at data and answering questions," Bodkin says.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
