Big Data is large and complex data sets. So large that traditional data processing software is not capable of collecting, managing and processing data in a reasonable amount of time.

These large data sets can include structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data, each of which can be mined to gain insights.

Big data solutions provide the tools, methods, and technologies used to capture, store, search, and analyze data in seconds to find relationships and insights for improvements and benefits competitive benefits that were not available before.
