[NWV_103] Big Data Essentials

Printer-friendly PDF version

Implementations of Big Data are still evolving as the industry grapples with this potentially significant technology transformation. Several definitions of the term “Big Data” exist but most of the industry agrees that the concept essentially is about ‘the ability to capture, manage, analyze and correlate large amounts of varied structured and un-structured data very quickly without too much delay. This is beyond the capability of traditional Relational Database Management Systems and needs a different approach from the perspective of Processes, Software, Hardware and Analytics. As with any new field, several approaches exist but the Hadoop ecosystem of software seems to be the de-facto industry standard for this. Key concepts will be discussed upon which Big Data is founded along with the industry landscape and motivation.
