Why Big Data

Need for Big Data

Did you know that approximately 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last few years? and It’s includes 10% of structured data (which can be alalysed via RDBMS like MySql/Oracle and any other RDBMS) and 80% of unstructured data that are difficult to analyse.

The structured data formats, such as RDBMS databases, It have limitations for handling large data sets. Therefor, Big Data technologies are needed to analyse the unstructured data.


Do you know ? What can be done with these Big Data?

It could provide the business, but the data is very-very large, how it can be analysed, how it can processed, these problem can be solved by the big data technologies. In short via using Big Data technologies, Information can be converted to knowledge


Examples where Big Data technologies are using:

1. Netflix video streaming company is analysing the user data to find the popular videos and watching patterns to produce the successful series. You have seen next recommendation video in YouTube.
2. Road traffic data is being analysed to develop a car that can drive completely accident free by it self.

3. Single Jet engine can generate 10+terabytes of data in 30 minutes of a flight time. With many thousand flights per day, generation of data reaches up to many Petabytes.

It’s a just the few examples of the use case of the big data.
