What Is Big Data?

When a large set of datasets becomes too complex or difficult to deal, such types of data are usually termed as Big Data. The challenges related with this field are Capture, Curation, Storage, Search, Sharing, Transfer, Analysis and Visualization of the data. Traditional systems like RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems) failed to handle Big Data. In order to get meaningful information, to interconnect the different pieces of various types of data and to get value from Big Data, new technologies and tools were developed (Jacobs, 2009).
