What is Big Data
Big Data is a Buzzword used to mean a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large it is difficult to process using traditional database and software techniques for analytics. In most enterprise scenarios the volume of data is too big or it moves too fast or it exceeds current processing and analytical capacity.
Big Data is also a Buzzword for a new generation of tools and architectural approaches to get more answers out of your big data. The question is always, what tools do you use to best get the answers you are looking for.
