Big Data

Big Data is a strategic asset for many companies today. But the exponential growth of collected data, both structured and unstructured, is difficult to analyze, process, and manage when using existing DBMS tools and traditional data processing methods and applications.

Without new tools and methods, much of the potential benefit of all that data remains untapped.

Extracting Actionable Insights

While some companies have met the basic requirements for data management analytics, many still face the challenges of how to manage high volumes of unstructured data and extract key insights. They need to develop cost-effective and secure solutions with the right tools and systems that address specific business needs and deliver more value to customers.

Data Engineer or Data Scientist or Both?

Further complicating their efforts is confusion over the necessary roles and responsibilities. Companies have invested in hiring Data Scientists only to find that there are still gaps that can only be filled by Big Data Engineers. They are equipped to prepare the “big data” infrastructure which makes data easily accessible, and optimize the performance of a big data ecosystem. The primary function of a Data Scientist is to analyze the integrated data and identify the valuable and actionable insights.
