Big Data, Big Workflow, Workflow of Workflow, Meta-Workflow

[Imagine an animation in which at first you only see the Big Data wave, and then the Big Workflow wave comes into view.]


You’ve probably seen this big wave and you’ve heard the phrase, “big data.” This is actually an animation. It’s a series of slides so it’s not quite as smooth but you can imagine that wave is moving. I will argue that close on the heels of big data is something I call, “big workflow.”

Well, if you ever think of data about data, that’s metadata. Thinking about thinking, that’s meta cognition. Well, workflow about workflow is meta workflow but l like workflow of workflow better as a phrase.
