Creating a single view of entities of interest is increasingly becoming a requirement for effective insight generation about product/service quality and customer expectations. The explosive growth of data both within an enterprise and outside (Web & Social Media) has made the task of creating a unified view challenging and interesting. In this talk, I will show how Big Data impacts Single View Creation, present use cases that show that the problem is not just that of business but even present in areas of common interest like better traffic management, public safety etc. I will then give a deep dive on a solution that augments enterprise data by extracting relevant information from Web sources.
