This data explosion is referred to as big data, which renders current data management methods inadequate. IBM® is preparing the next generation of technology to meet these data management challenges.
To provide the capability of using big data sources and analytics of these sources, IBM has developed the IBM InfoSphere® BigInsights™ product. This offering is based on the open source computing framework known as Apache Hadoop. This framework provides unique capabilities to the data management ecosystem and further enhances the value of investment in the data warehouse. This IBM Redbooks® Solution Guide describes the value of big data in organizations and how the InfoSphere BigInsights solution helps organizations to handle this data.
