Big Data

What is Big Data?

Big Data is the ocean of information we swim in every day – vast zetabytes of data flowing from our computers, mobile devices, and machine sensors. With the right Big Data tools, your organisation can store, manage, and analyse this data – and gain valuable insights that were previously unimaginable. Big Data technologies such as in-memory data management, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning can help you transform decision making and your business.
