Why study Specialization in Big Data and Business Engineering?

In the world, organizations generate, collect, store, process and analyze more and more data. We are facing an "explosion of the quantity available", since the growth of these is at least exponential. According to a study by Gartner, cited by Jaspersoft, the volume generated in 2009 alone was greater than that created in the previous 5,000 years (Jaspersoft, nd). Also in 2009, Computerworld, in its publication of the 10 most important trends in ICT management, stressed that "in the next five years, company data will grow an additional 650%."
