Companies interest in data analysis is increasing, as it helps to proliferate their growth, expand their business, lessen the costs and can establish themselves firmly in the global market.

When I first heard the term Big Data few years ago, I didn’t think much of it. Soon after, Big Data started appearing in many of my conversations with many of my tech friends.

He looked at me as if I just landed from Mars and went on to explain why Big Data is the next ‘in thing’ and why everyone should know about Big Data but never directly answered my question.
