Mastering Big Data

Global Edulink

Data Analytics – What’s the big idea?

“Big data” is a term for data sets that are so large or complex that traditional data processing application software is unable to adequately deal with them. Challenges include capture, storage, analysis, data curation, search, sharing, transfer, visualisation, querying, updating, and information privacy. The term big data often refers simply to the use of predictive analytics, user behaviour analytics, or certain other advanced data analytics methods that extract value from data, and rarely to a particular size of data set.

Multinational corporations such as LinkedIn or Pinterest are having to use complex data analytics to manage the sheer volume of big data that they possess. This has become a lucrative business for technical specialists who can effectively manage this data on their behalf, working either on a contract or permanent basis.
