Hi Sam,

That's a tough question to answer exactly. I did a little digging and found a few articles that will at least give you some examples of it and an overview of how it might effect things. I suspect that some companies are simply ahead of others on Big Data. It remains to be seen how long it will be before the others become more aware of it and suddenly realize they need to catch up ASAP.
