Big Data News

Many technology experts expect big data to be a key driver of change in the coming years in science, business and the economy. But how do you harness the opportunities and exploit them? The first step is to be as informed on the topic as possible, and you can do that through the Wiser big data news email. But what is big data anyway? Is it a technology, a concept or a market sector? In a sense, it is all of these things. It covers data that traditional database systems can't handle. This could be because of the size of the data, the nature of the data, or the speed at which it changes. This presents technological challenges, as well as opportunities, as scientists, businesses and organizations work out new ways to analyze and use the information. This means it is constantly changing as today's big data becomes manageable and tomorrow's becomes bigger - and potentially more useful - than before. We curate the top content on the topic of big data from around the web and deliver it in a concise and easy-to-use daily digest. Think of it like the big data of big data news - register today.
