Big Data – what is it and how can we utilize it to make decisions?
Big data is an all-encompassing term for any collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process them using traditional data processing applications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_data
As data collection continues to grow for organizations and expanding data sets, there is an increasing demand to be able to process and interpret data in a logical way to provide predictive and ‘learned’ outcomes. Platforms are designed to handle the large data sets and be able to process in non-linear methods which decreases the amount of time required to process data results and in some cases being able to ‘jump’ data not required to be analyzed by the data request.
The challenges to make Big Data help with your decisions come back to questions on what are the questions you need answered; from here, required data can be reviewed and appropriate methods can be designed to help lead to the decisions required. CONTACT US regarding your Big Data needs.
