The goal of this project was to research a topic of Data Analytics not covered extensively in class and write a write-up on the topic. The results of this project was the write-up that I typed after researching my topic which was big data.
What I learned
I learned about big data through this project. Big data is collected by organizations for many purposes. Some of them are for analysis, predictive modeling, and data mining. The classifications of big data are structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. Big data is important to organizations because it helps them make business decisions or for example, marketing campaigns based on the data. I learned that big data cannot be easily analyzed or processed efficiently by traditional management tools because of the massive size of the data. Some examples of where big data can come from are from social media databases like Twitter data feeds, clickstreams on websites, emails, etc. An example of a company that uses big data is Netflix.
