Almost Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Big Data


Published on

Debra Hoffa & Brice Giesbrecht
Big Data, a phrase that is everywhere and whether you believe it is over-hyped, under-promised, or somewhere in between, one thing is for certain; it is here to stay. It is called a disruptive technology but chaos does not necessarily follow. In this presentation, together we will survey Big Data technology and how it used. We will discuss where big data projects are similar and dissimilar from traditional IT projects. The result will be a greater understanding of what these projects look like and how you can be prepared to manage them.
