It would seem that every business is considering big data right now. Big data is seen to give businesses great insights about their operations and could spell the difference between getting swallowed by the competition or surviving in this increasingly cutthroat environment.
One of the constructs you should be looking at is velocity. Most businesses only look at the volume of data that they have to manage when it comes to evaluating their big data software. However, you would need to be able to process a tremendous amount of data very fast to be able to make timely decisions. This is the only way you could maximize the value out of your data. This is what is termed as “fast data”, or the ability to manage huge quantities of data. This is the capability to access and process data in real time.
