Big Data Integration
"Big data" encompasses rapidly growing structured data in corporate databases and data warehouses as well as a wide range of semi-structured data (such as web server logs and sensor logs) and unstructured data (including documents, email, and image files). Today's enterprise IT staff is tasked with managing this data in a way that maximizes its business value. A critical aspect of this is task is big data integration. Big data integration entails bringing together data from a range of source systems into a big data computing platform such as Hadoop, so that it can be mined and analyzed for insights into how the business can operate more effectively and profitably.
