“Compute refers to applications and workloads that require a great deal of computation, necessitating sufficient resources to handle these computation demands in an efficient manner.”
Big data are collections of data too cumbersome to be adequately managed by traditional data processing means. Organizations in the petrochemical, oil and gas, finance, public safety, medical research, engineering and academic fields are often the most prominent users of deep analysis of this voluminous data. The challenges faced by these entities extends beyond the capture, sharing, storage, privacy and transfer to the complexities of enabling its visualization in order to make this data more useful.
The collection and dissemination of big data provides corporations with the ability to analyze trends, dissect user patterns and incorporate predictive analytics to further their abilities to meet client demands, streamline processes and stay ahead of the competition.
The ever increasing deployment of data capture devices such as cameras, smart-phones, radio frequency identification (RFID), remote sensors, software logs and other smart devices can stress the abilities of organizations to manage and analyze big data.
