Big data are datasets that grow so large that they become awkward to work with using on-hand database management tools. Difficulties include capture, storage, search, sharing, analytics, and visualizing. Big data sizes are a constantly moving target currently ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data in a single data set.
Big Data requires exceptional technologies to efficiently process large quantities of data within tolerable elapsed times. Technologies being applied to Big Data include data mining grids, Apache Hadoop Framework, distributed file systems, distributed databases, MapReduce algorithms, etc.
Our Big Data team focuses on identifying, designing and implementing systems with measurable business value that can be realized quickly. We enhance the Hadoop technology stack to create complete business solutions.
