Most Companies Spend Very Little, A Few Spend A Lot Most companies aren't spending a lot on their big data initiatives, but some are investing heavily. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) found that large companies undertaking big data initiatives are spending a median of $10 million. Twenty-five percent of companies spent less than $2.5 million on their initiatives in 2012.

On the other hand, 15 percent of the companies surveyed by TCS spent more than $100 million on big data initiatives in 2012; 7 percent spent more than $500 million.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
