Best Practices For Managing Big Data
Big Data is the result of practically everything in the world being monitored and measured, creating data faster than the available technologies can store, process or manage it. Since it is a lot more intuitive to represent information as a “file” than a relational object, there has been a surge of unstructured data, making up as much as 80% of new data we must manage.
Organizations are struggling to manage Big Data. According to IDC, the amount of information created, captured or replicated has exceeded available storage for the first time since 2007. The size of the digital universe this year will be tenfold what it was just five years earlier.
