Hiring guide to find the perfect Big Data Analytics consultant

The demand for tracking and analyzing data keeps increasing. Each time we use the internet, some data is generated. These data are structured, semi-structured, or unstructured and are referred to as big data. 

Hence, analyzing these data is critical to help understand trends and reveal information in the use of technology.

What does big data analytics mean?

Big data analytics is the process of perusing big data to get information such as correlations, hidden patterns, market trends, and user preferences to help organizations make informed business decisions. 

Big data, in a nutshell, is a bundle of data with enormous data size and records exponential increases. This means the data set has high complexity, and none of the traditional data processing tools can store or process it efficiently. 

Examples of big data include the New York Stock Exchange and social media. The New York Stock exchange generates about one terabyte of new trade data every day, while the Facebook site data size increases by over 500 terabytes of data daily. 

This data is generated from messages exchanged and comments passed on the site, photos and videos uploaded. Big data is usually characterized by the following:

  1. Volume
  2. Variety
  3. Velocity
  1. Volume: This refers to the data size, and it is the most important criterion for classifying data as big data. 
  2. Variety: This refers to the heterogeneity of the various sources of the data and the nature of the data. 
  3. Velocity: The speed of data generation can also contribute to its size. How fast the data is generated and processed to meet the demands determines the real potential of the data.
