Big data—a concept that in the past few years has progressed from IT forums to the mainstream media—is the result of this incredible growth of information. Data stemming from a growing number of new sources continues to create volumes so large that they can easily move beyond our ability to understand and manage them. In response to this trend, big data technologies have emerged to help gain control over vast data quantities. Although some organizations have already adopted these technologies to help manage, analyze and leverage their information for business insights, big data projects are the wave of the near future for many others, surging to the top spot on their priority lists. One recent IBM study found, in fact, that more than two-thirds of chief marketing officers plan to implement new strategies and technologies for managing big data.
