The BIAC differs from many existing centers/efforts in this domain because it places equal emphasis on technologies and techniques, the twin requirements for success in the emerging world of Big Data, according to a recent McKinsey & Company report. This center will encompass data-analytics-oriented initiatives spanning all areas of business and economics, cooperate and coordinate with other data-intensive efforts at Purdue and collect and house data from public proprietary, simulated and experimental sources for exploration, modeling and prediction.
