Big Data: Eight Facts and Eight Fictions

  • Big Data: Eight Facts and Eight Fictions-

    Fiction #7: Big Data searched with dumb algorithms fails to yield what little data can yield using smarter algorithms.

    The concept of Big Data should be about the algorithms and not about the data itself. Better precision and better searching techniques will trap the breaches. Better algorithms and lesser data stacks will provide more value than lesser algorithms and bigger data stacks. The better net will catch better stuff.

As with cloud computing, Big Data is a hot topic around the business right now. Expectations for what it can achieve often reach into the stratosphere. At the same time, the overwhelming amount of data involved is daunting and can seem like an insurmountable obstacle. So what is Big Data, where does it come from, and what can you actually do with it? ThreatTrack Security has identified eight facts and eight fictions regarding Big Data.
