Insights to Big Data and Quality
Topic Abstract:
In the light of big data and new style of business decision paradigm, enormous amount of unstructured data is processed along with traditional structured data in near real time to generate actionalable insights. In this talk, you will learn about Big Data, NoSQL vs SQL , Hadoop and how the old business decision process is different from new one. What tools and platforms can be used to generate the insights? Our insight is as good as THE sourced data and data in process.
What is quality of sourced data and data in process? Quality assurance process for Big data is today mostly ad-hoc process filled with scripts, proprietary and inhouse setups. It is because source data could be tweets, facebook updates or blog posts and every customer has unique need to process them for their business use. Over time, few tools and practices have evolved, thanks to open source revolution. We will review such tools and practices in place today to handle the quality management in general. As examples,we will cover Google Refine and Hadoop as a Service by Mortar Data.
