What is Big Data?

90% of the world’s data has been generated in just the last two years. Each day another 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. Big Data is here – with a vengeance.  According to the IT research firm, Gartner, Big Data has these characteristics:

  • Volume
  • Velocity
  • Variety
  • Complexity

Big Data comes from everywhere: from posts to social media sites, on-line purchase transactions, weather sensors, and digital pictures and videos posted online. Huge and growing volumes of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data are streaming into organizations at a faster and faster rate. Companies are applying a range of technologies do deal with Big Data such as massively parallel processing (MPP) databases, distributed databases and file systems, cloud computing and scalable storage systems among others.
