Industry Perspectives for insideBIGDATA

Industry Perspectives is a guest column channel on insideBIGDATA that showcases thought leadership and education in the big data industry. It provides big data vendors and professionals with the opportunity to submit big data related articles, sharing their insight and expertise with our audience. More than 70,000 data scientist, business and IT professionals visit insideBIGDATA to stay informed as they plan, build, and manage their big data strategies.

This is an opportunity to share your expertise or encourage discussion about important issues facing the big data industry. The focus of these articles should be advanced education and thought leadership. We do not accept articles that appear to be sales oriented, or designed to build search engine optimization through multiple links back to your client or company.

Submissions should be about 500 to 750 words, longer if needed to convey your message. Images and charts are always welcome. We also invite you to send a photo of the author, his or her title, company name, and a link to the company’s home page. Click here to see samples of other guest columnist articles.

We publish within a few weeks of receipt of the full column. This depends on volume. We will work with you if there is a specific date you want to publish.

Submissions are welcome on most big data topics, but we are particularly interested in content related to these areas:
• Big data software and hardware
• Industry specific big data applications
• Data science
• Predictive Analytics
• Machine learning
• Data Storage
• Visualization

All submissions are subject to an editorial review. We also may edit submissions for length or clarity, but will consult with our contributors about any changes.

If you or your company is interested in participating in Industry Perspectives, please e-mail Stephanie Ellars at for details or with any questions.
