Big Data: Big Challenge, Big Opportunity
Terabytes and even petabytes of unstructured data hold vital business information somewhere within – but sifting through a virtual haystack of skyscraper proportions requires new tools and new ideas. Even sophisticated relational systems can’t extract all the value from the massive collections of data maintained, and enlarged daily, by today’s organizations. New solutions are needed.
This white paper briefly summarizes the impending data overload and then describes how advanced platforms and processes can be used to build an effective, affordable information mining and analysis system. Find out how tools like Hadoop help businesses not only dig up the data they’re looking for but also discover what that data means.
