Well I do. One of my favorite scary movies is “The Sixth Sense.” There is a famous scene in this movie, where a horrified child admits to his friend that he sees dead people. Do you recall it? While hiding half of his face under a blanket like a toddler, he whispers: “I see dead people, all the time. They are everywhere.”

That scene reminds me of some of the executives and managers that I often cross paths with when I ask them about their data analytics practice. The look on their faces brings me right back to that movie scene, but instead they say: “We see big data, all the time. It is everywhere.”
