Big Data Problem Big data volumes are growing exponentially. This phenomenon has been happening for years, but its pace has accelerated dramatically since 2012. Check out this blog entitled Big Data Just Beginning to Explode from CSC for a similar viewpoint on the emergence of big data and the challenges related thereto.
Hadoop is an increasingly popular computing environment for distributed processing that business can use to analyze and store huge amounts of data. Some of the world’s largest and most data-intensive corporate users deploy Hadoop to consolidate, combine and analyze big data in both structured and complex sources.

IRI Voracity is an affordable data management platform that streamlines information architectures and helps enterprises leverage the intrinsic value of data without the cost or complexity of multiple tools.
BI and analytic tools cannot handle the volume, variety, velocity, and veracity challenges of big data. Today there are many ways to prepare (franchise) that data into the subsets that visualization platforms can ingest, but each typically involves trade-offs between performance, price, and capability.
