Big Data the new “Big” thing to hit IT
But what is Big Data? Are companies utilising Big Data correctly? Do companies understand Big Data?
Big Data is effectively each and every piece of data your organization has stored till now, it includes data stored in clouds and even the URLs that you bookmarked. All this data can be used to get different results using different types of analysis. Different analysis uses different parts of the Big Data to produce the results and predictions necessary.
This is where specialist technologies such as Hadoop/NoSQL have played a huge part in Big Data, rather than working like a usual database, they provide specialist analysis across a large amount of data, enabling companies to manage their Big Data needs. Companies can also utilise Data Scientists to predict data patterns and enable them to use the data in a more proficient and profitable way.
