This particular paper also offers the analysis of various opportunities in the relation to big data as well as various issues concerning the big data in the case of examining the opportunities.
Economical issues associated with Big Data:
Big data does the implication of various economic issues that have both the positive as well as negative impacts. However, big data acts as the catalyst for doing the various innovations at the time of doing the development of big data in order to incorporate all the strategies to derive the various benefits in the terms of doing the capturing various efficiencies regarding the big data of different sectors. Therefore, all these efficiencies can create the negative impacts that also include the various downsizing of different workforces. Furthermore, the explosion of big data analytics direct various industry actors, policy makers etc in order to view the data as the resources that also have the value that helps in order to boost the economy.
For instance, Big Data has largely helped many developed economy such as UK, Japan, etc. Through this tool, the economies are able to collect, transmit, store, analyze and act on the data. As a result, the economies are well able to collect right amount of data related to weather or crop plantings. On the other hand, the history of plant including rainfall, sprayings, etc is easily collected which helps in making effective plan so that best value can be generated. Moreover, through big data, the economies are able to predict the weather for any particular region. Therefore, if they found that there will be high amount of rainfall then they alert the government to prepare themselves to tackle such situation.
Social and ethical issues associated with Big Data:
Big data helps in doing the implication of various social as well as ethical issues like discrimination, privacy, trusts, manipulation as well as exploitation. Moreover, in doing the description of various big data practices it mainly deals with various data from the people and the human elements that mainly focus on both the moral as well as social codes. Therefore, all these issues are needed in doing the recognition that helps in doing the incorporation of various fundamental ethical and social issues related to the big data practices. Various issues related to the social as well as ethical issues needs to do the recognition that helps the organization in order to incorporate various fundamental ethical as well as social values related to the big data policies and practices.
For example, the big data has lead to development of mHealth Alliance which is a public health group. It helps in analyzing the data that has been transmitted from the mobile phones of patients in nations such as South Africa and Bangladesh. Therefore, it helps in providing security and privacy of the patients in healthcare. Moreover, the healthcare is well-connected with the patients and they are able to acquire enough data about the patients’ well-being.
On the other hand, in order to understand the ethical issues, an example will be useful. It has been seen that Snapchat, a mobile messaging tool, has failed in protecting the privacy of message exchanged between two people due to lots of ad popping up. As a result, it raised question on ethicality of the company which badly hit them. On the other hand, WhatsApp worked on No Ads philosophy which helped in protecting the data of messengers. It shows ethical conduct of the company and as a result, the company gained 450 million in quick time as users.
Legal issues related to the big data:
Both the processing and collection of big data raises to the numbers of legal issues related to the context of contracting, property right and licensing. Therefore, big data causes various implications for doing the data protection as well as privacy that can leads to the numbers of jurisdictions problems. Moreover, the numbers of potential legal issues helps to raise both the negative and positive externalities that include various rights in doing the processing of big data. Legal issues arises mainly in the relation to the context of big data that includes various intellectual rights, contract issues and also the privacy risks associated with the implications of the due process. Furthermore, legal issues also highlight the existing gaps between the legal framework and the technological capabilities based on various uncertain outcomes for the economic development. Legal issues help in doing either the support or control the development of big data industry as well as recognition in the terms of doing the understanding about the framework based on big data.
Legal concern has risen with the rise of big data. The States of the nation is well involved in establishing privacy laws in relation to use of big data such as California Online Privacy Protection Act. This helps in protecting the data and pose legal action if anyone found guilty. On the other hand, European Union has also imposed number of laws and restrictions on the companies in regards to the breach of data.
According to Mangiameli, (2015), research methodology depicts in doing the overview of various composition of different components regarding the entire research that includes various research approach, research data and design. Therefore, the research design and methodology is mainly deals about the various procedures based on which the researcher becomes able in drawing the conclusion of this particular research study.
Hence, the researcher imposes the concentration in doing the recognition of the significance for the every step of the research methods (Minnitt, 2014). In order to analyze the selected information researcher uses several research methodology tools such as research approach, research philosophy, research design, research methods, sample and sampling techniques etc.
Mainly the research studies any one of the two existing research approaches. Moreover, the two research approaches are deductive approaches as well as inductive approaches. The deductive research approaches helps in doing the evaluation of various existing approaches with the various support of data analysis (Sowe & Zettsu, 2014). On the other hand, the inductive approach helps in doing the various observations, data analysis, data collection as well as various theory building models. The deductive approach of this particular research study follows various theories, testing of hypothesis, confirmation as well as observation of various objectives of this particular research study. The fundamental reason in doing the adoption of the deductive research approach will be suitable which also involves in this particular research study with the evaluation of the various existing theories about the topic of big data and also the various factors which can causes various impacts in the occurring of big data (Steinhaus, 2014). However, on the other side, both the analysis as well as findings part of the research study justify all the mentioned research theories in doing the relation of the social, legal as well as economical factors of big data. Therefore, depending on current information as well as according to the nature of research study, the deductive approach will become suitable for doing the present research study (Xu, Zhao & Wang, 2013).
The research design helps in doing the research study by doing the establishment of suitable framework of the entire research study. The research works helps in doing the research design in order to assemble the various objectives depending on the research study.
