Big Data for Small Businesses Featured

Written by 

As we begin our technology journey in 2013, we see a lot of hype about Big Data. While Big Data may have its own merits and de-merits, they may not matter much to the smaller businesses. For those who are still wondering on what "Big Data" is; in simple words it is nothing but a collection of really large and complex sets of data and the sheer size makes it difficult to process this data using our current database management tools and applications.

For decades, companies have been making business decisions based on transactional data stored in relational databases. Small businesses which do not deal with large amounts of data (exceeding 100s of GBs) with multiple complex databases may continue using such traditional databases. On the other hand if your small business handles large amount of unstructured data sets then you should start considering cost effective and innovate forms of information processing. One of the key considerations for Big Data structuring is Hadoop, which is an open-source software framework that supports processing of large data sets.
