Big Data in Big Companies

July 1, 2014

Big data burst upon the scene in the first decade of the 21st century, and the first organizations to embrace it were online and startup firms. Arguably, firms like Google, eBay, LinkedIn, and Facebook were built around big data from the beginning. They didn’t have to reconcile or integrate big data with more traditional sources of data and the analytics performed upon them, because they didn’t have those traditional forms. They didn’t have to merge big data technologies with their traditional IT infrastructures because those infrastructures didn’t exist. Big data could stand alone, big data analytics could be the only focus of analytics, and big data technology architectures could be the only architecture.
