TechD and IBM BigInsights bring the power of Hadoop to the enterprise
Organizations are discovering that important predictions can be made by sorting through and analyzing Big Data. Since 80% of this data is “unstructured”, it must be formatted (or structured) in a way that makes it suitable for data mining and subsequent analysis.
Hadoop is the core platform for structuring Big Data, and solves the problem of formatting it for subsequent analytics purposes. Hadoop uses a distributed computing architecture consisting of multiple servers using commodity hardware, making it relatively inexpensive to scale and support extremely large data stores.
