Big Data is not a new problem. Companies have always stored large amounts of data—structured like databases, unstructured like documents—in multiple repositories across the enterprise. The most important aspect of big data is not how big it is, or where it should be stored, or how it should be accessed. It’s the efficacy of business intelligence tools to plumb its depths for patterns and trends, to derive insight from it that will give companies competitive advantage in an increasingly challenging business climate. Visualization allows companies to analyze big data in real-time across a variety of sources in order to make better business decisions.
