IJCSEC Front Page
Big data isn’t just a technology it’s a business strategy for capitalizing on information resources. Big Data is data whose scale, diversity, and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms, and analytics to manage it and extract value and hidden knowledge from it.“A massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large that it's difficult to process with traditional database and software techniques.” Big Data has become a valuable resource and mechanism for the practitioners and researchers to explore the value of data sets in all kinds of business scenarios and scientific investigations. New computing platforms such as cloud computing, mobile Internet, social network are driving the innovations of big data. From industry perspective, IBM, SAP, Oracle, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and other leading software and internet service companies have also launched their own innovation initiatives around big data.
