What is big data? Big data is the vast amounts of data collected from various sources, both traditional and digital from within and out of the business.
Every organisation generates massive amounts of data daily -from traditional data derived from sales transactions and financial records to digital data in disparate systems. Traditional databases are no longer sufficient and new platforms are required by digital businesses today to manage the enormous amount of data produced.
To manage such big data, it is important to implement infrastructure capable of storing and processing large amounts of data at extremely faster rates as compared to traditional data systems, thus increasing efficiency and scale. Big data tools can also be implemented to make sense and analyse the vast amounts of data produced.
