Value-driven Perspective to Big Data: Combinatorics and Permutation Implications

By Vukosi Sambo

According to Lego Staticians, two 2×4 (eight button) Lego bricks render 24 possible shape combinations. Add a 3rd brick and that number takes off to 1060. Add 3 more brick and the Lego magic really kicks in: just 6 (2×4) bricks makes the lucky recipient into a near billionaire of playtime possibility, with an incredible 915 103 765 combinations at their fingertips.

From a 2 year old to an elderly more astute individual, almost anyone can play with the blocks. The simplicity of the Lego brick is the magic behind this. A highly qualitative brick that have been built to be understood by almost everyone to deliver an exponential increasing pleasure and complexity in challenge and obsession is the greatest opportunity we have at maximizing exploitation of “data bricks” for our organisations and society at large.

This fine-tunes simplicity of the Lego brick is precisely what ensures the dazzling potential of its applications for business users and democratization of data and insights. In our organization, we generate hundreds of millions of data points every year, the potential trillions of permutations and combinations of these data bricks is at the core of out Big Data Strategy.
