Big Data and Analytics

Big Data and Analytics

Within this area we look at how 'big data' architectures are enabling problems to be tackled and opportunities to be exploited that have hitherto been impractical in a mainstream environment. Our coverage here is very inclusive, taking in scale-out architectures based on commodity kit (such as Apache Hadoop), proprietary scale-out technology, high-end cluster-based solutions, and even software that can drive performance to the next level in a smaller environment. We also consider relevant hosted and cloud-based services.

Over-arching all of this is the key question of how big data technology will integrate with existing business intelligence and information management solutions to enable broader access and a coherent approach to decision support.
