An outlook into the world of data centric business, technologies and 
innovations: Data is everywhere these days and efficient data management 
is THE key factor for success in nearly all industries in the meantime. 
McKinsey lists data as a key factor for production alongside with labor 
and capital in one of their recent reports. Furthermore, Data is 
produced in huge amounts by sensors, social networks or mobile devices 
and the amounts of data available worldwide grow exponentially…
