Few possibilities and lacking

More or less, all the companies of different sectors try to use the big data at its best. Few benefit from the big data more than others. Sometimes the productivity of certain companies of different sectors is compared in accordance to obtained value from the big data. As a consequence, the opportunities and chances that have been collected from different sectors must vary from one to another. Many sectors such as finance, computer, electronics and many others of private and Government are presumably supposed to gain from the wide use of the big data. When there is an immense possibility of gain, there is a shortage of talent who successively can make the best use of this. For making the effective solution, the analysts and managers should know about the all the relevant results, but fundamentally, most of them are lack the deep knowledge and proper skill. To capture the best potentiality of the big data, it is needed to be addressed by the security, privacy and the intellectual properties. Besides, arranging the excellent talents, the companies also need some effective and organized work flow.
