Big Data

  • What is it?
    Big Data describes the large volume of data – both structured, semi-structured and unstructured – that is collected by a business on a daily basis. This data can be generated by both humans (such as a customer's financial transactions), as well as by machines and processes (such as sensor readings and event logs). By its nature, the amount of Big Data is often massive – ranging from terabytes, petabytes and even exabytes of data captured over time.

  • Why you need it? Who needs it?
    The importance of Big Data doesn't revolve around how much you have, but what you do with it – the vast pool of data has an enormous potential to be analyzed for insights leading to better business decisions, which include enabling cost reductions, time reductions, new product development, and smart strategic decision making. Examples could include:

    • Determining root causes of failures, issues and defects in near-real time.
    • Generating coupons at the point of sale based on the customer's buying habits.
    • Recalculating entire risk portfolios in minutes.
    • Detecting fraudulent behavior in real time based on financial transactions.

    Organizations that can benefit from the collection and analytics of Big Data include those in banking, education, government, health care, manufacturing and retail industries.
