When we talk about Big Data we are often talking about massive volumes of unstructured or semi-structured data such as web logs, social media feeds, e-mail, sensors, photographs, and similar devices. This data is typically very low density which means that, one single observation on its own does not have a lot of value. Rather, you have to aggregate all these data, sometimes millions of observations, and then swift through it to derive real-value from it. Using the power of the cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud Service helps you get the most out of big data today, and in minutes.
Big Data is not only about Analytics. It’s about the entire value chain. So, when you think about Big Data solutions, you have to think about the following actions:
- Acquire streams of unstructured data or semi-structured data.
- Organize/Transform acquired massive amount of unstructured data such that it can be easily integrated into other systems.
- Analyze the data to discover useful information for decision-making.
- Decide how you want to turn this data into something useful, something that decision makers see in the dashboards quickly.
There are a lot of technologies out there that address the above actions of the Big Data process. Then, why Oracle Big Data Cloud Service?
