Today, organizations in every industry (i.e. healthcare, finance, retail, telecommunications & others) are being showered with imposing quantities of new information. Along with traditional sources, many more data channels encompassing un-structured data now exist. This proliferation of data from both structured and un-structured sources is giving rise to a phenomenon called "Big Data." Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to utilize the right tools and techniques to capture and organize a wide variety of data types from different sources (both structured and un-structured), and to be able to easily analyze it within the context of all your enterprise data.
