Big Data
• What is Big Data?
“In information technology, Big Data is a
collection of data sets so large and complex that
it becomes difficult to process using on-hand
database management tools. The challenges
include capture, curation, storage, search,
sharing, analysis, and visualization.”

Analytics
“Analytics is the discovery and communication
of meaningful patterns in data. Especially
valuable in areas rich with recorded information,
analytics relies on the simultaneous application
of statistics, computer programming and
operations research to quantify performance.
Analytics often favors data visualization to
communicate insight.”

Big Data Analytics
• Data Analytics is a growing filed that has been
in the spotlight for the last decade
• According renowned data scientist Dr. Usama
Fayyad, meaningful use of data is determined
by 3Vs – Volume, Velocity and Variety
From Traditional Data to Big Data
Processing
• Major trends that impacted the advances:
– Cloud Computing
– Rise of Social Computing media
– Exponential growth in mobile computing
Growth in Data
• Other than traditional file systems, the
transactional and stored data has changed
significantly
• Rise in non-structured data such as images,
video, audio, messages, device data, location
data has exponentially grown in the past
decade
Some Facts About Data Growth…
• LinkedIn has more than users 175 million

Utilization of Big Data
• Utilization of such data has become a matter of
research and technologies have developed to
deal with large amount of data and make it more
meaningful
• Such data can provide extreme value to if
analyzed appropriately
• For example detailed study of compiled data can
provide intelligence on various aspects or
behaviour of an individual and even help in
predicting what may happen next
How Is Big Data Utilized?
