Here’s a great example of how one company takes Big Data and makes it fun. Help is a drug company that strives to simplify the pharmaceutical choices for customers. Their website now features a map highlighting sales data from Target and Walgreens called “What’s wrong U.S.?”. A bar chart for each state shows how many people are buying products for particular ailments versus the national average; you can also click on the state and get region by region details. For example, Central Texas, home to our home, Austin, TX has a higher than average number of blisters. Maybe it’s all the running and biking we do!
