Abstract

Big Data refers to the massive amount of data generated from IT systems, sensors, and mobile devices. The values of big data are achieved by descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics. Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) play a significant role in contributing to economic development. Big data is seen as a strategic and innovative tool for SMEs to stay competitive in the marketplace. However, there is lack of research in studying the value of big data to SMEs. Moreover, due to the shortage of quality learning platforms, SMEs have limited understanding of the potential benefits big data offers their businesses. This research aims to propose an educational portal of big data for SMEs by incorporating the pedagogy aspects. The research is underpinned by design science research. The portal contributes theoretically and methodologically by deriving the design knowledge of such portal and practically by increasing big data knowledge among SMEs.
