Ever since the internet came into the world, there has been a seriously large amount of data generating worldwide. Data that used to be in gigabytes in the past, and memory chips and cards with the maximum size of gigabyte, have now grown beyond limit. Nanotechnology came in to compress, and further compress big data to smaller technological tools and today big data saving is therefore no big deal. Still big data is a challenge to multi nationals that have plenty of data in their shared servers and managing and organizing them is still a challenge.
Originally, database used to be very limited and it could store only as much of data. But now not just computers or companies produce data. Rather, every household across every big city with a computer is producing a long list of data. These data could be downloads and history of internet browsing and conversation data and it could be of various sizes too. Therefore, today big data management system has come up front to help everyone. Abhishek Gattani is a famous expert in this field who is also the creator of Polaris and has filed over 17 patents in this area. He also believes that there is more to big data in the future too.
What is the future of big data like?
Now it is not just computers with internet connection that produce big sized data. There are also smartphones and GPS enabled tablets, fit-bits and more that keep storing data of various kinds- from monitoring the fitness and heart conditions, to keeping stock of photographs and videos and streaming them online. This just shows the kind of data load that is going to happen in just a few years only.
But thankfully with cloud storage many of these problems are less but not totally over. The experienced professionals like Abhishek Gattani would be able to handle bigger data thanks to the innovation happening today at this level. Here scientists are making server farms so easy to access and handle online and through cloud that programmers and database managers just have to follow and use algorithm formulae to handle and use the data in the way they want.
Data collected by each business is different and though these days the data might be in cloud, still in order to make it safe, programmers would also have to provide it with great security measures.
It becomes easy if the data of a multinational firm is on cloud server since that eases the monitoring of data and remotely accessing it from anywhere too.
Big data is not just to monitor works across companies and businesses but it is easy to understand customer demands by looking at search engine trends. Companies who really wish to put the data to use have been making miracles and putting in to action proper campaigns for marketing and promotion. Big data management is a trend that most of the countries and companies have adopted and are already benefiting out of them with ease.
