Big Data Transforms Business eBook

Big Data is no longer just an issue for 'big science' research projects, multimedia businesses, and web search engines. The term Big Data describes digital information that is collectively large in volume (hundreds of terabytes to petabytes), is in a variety of formats (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured), and has high velocity (requires real-time or near-real-time processing).

Businesses that exploit Big Data to improve their strategy and execution can distance themselves from competitors by using new insights from data that was formerly discarded or could not be processed due to technology limitations.
