"Big Data" is digital information that is large in volume (hundreds of terabytes to petabytes), is available in a variety of formats (structured, semi-structured, and unstructured), and has high velocity (requires real-time or near-real-time processing). In the past, much of this data may have been discarded, or could not be processed due to technology limitations.
Big Data solutions from EMC include Isilon scale-out storage, a unified analytics platform from Pivotal, and application development and business process tools from Pivotal and Documentum, enabling organizations to draw deeper business insights from their information.
Businesses that exploit Big Data can improve operations, focus strategy, develop better products and deeper customer relationships, and become more agile and predictive. Big Data is a strategic imperative for businesses of all types and sizes.
