Reducing the odds — how to prepare for the impact of big data

  • The ultimate goal of the set of technologies collectively referred to as big data is to provide the means to improve the accuracy of the decisions and to decrease the latency of making them.
  • Before the advent of big data, analysts relied on sampling from a population and, depending on the size of the samples, were able to come up with some conclusion bound with some level of uncertainty.
  • At the base of the big data stack is the physical layer the very large cluster of racks in data centres operated by numerous cloud service providers (CSP) accessible via broad network access.
  • Aside from analytics, the big attribute of big data also has meaning in information technology: above a certain threshold in terms of size (tera, petabytes and beyond) data sets cannot be handled with traditional data storage technologies.
  • From the perspective of a new or prospective big data user, the good news is that there is no need to become an expert in HDFS technology to take advantage of the power of big data.
