Big Data

The Big Data is the most famous buzzword around the globe.  The Big Data captures & dominates the global market, and reaches wider audience, namely academician, IT industries, various scientific & many businesses organizations. How does the Big Data capture the global market in a few years, approximately, from 2009. It’s amazing to know that the Big Data can boost 60% profit margin of a business. Besides, has published that the most number of currently opening jobs are data scientist, data analyst, data manager, and Big Data Engineer with highest package (CTC) ever. This shows that doing research on the Big Data technology gives you a career growths as well as future direction. The field of interested topics of Big Data are enlisted below:

  • Big Data analytics.
  • NoSQL
  • Hadoop stack
  • MapReduce
  • HDFS
  • Metadata
  • Big Graph

Let’s know what is Big Data from here.
