Big Data, Simplified!
Nowadays, companies are drowning in data but starving for information. The very nature of data changed in ways people didn’t expect; it grew out of proportion and became more and more unstructured. Being able to efficiently capture, store, search and analyze these new, large data sets can be a daunting task.
Hence, it is of no surprise that Big Data is gaining rapid momentum in IT land. It is becoming the new, elusive playground of large consultancy firms that try to convince you and your company that this is the next major paradigm-shift. In all likelihood however, their Mumbo-Jumbo probably left you wondering why and how to invest in this new kid on the block …
