What is Big Data?
Big Data refers to data sets that are too large and complex (combination of structured, semi-structured and unstructured data) for traditional data-processing software to deal with.
These extremely large data sets may be analysed computationally to reveal patterns, trends, and associations, especially relating to human behaviour and interactions. These insights can help in the decision making of companies to define their long term strategies to optimise their businesses and enhance profitability.
