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.

The Human Face of Big Data

The Human Face of Big Data, an award-winning documentary, explores how real-time Big Data visualisation tools are helping the world address some of humanity’s biggest challenges – including pollution, world hunger, and illness.
