With all the news surrounding the issue of "Big Data", it's important to understand what exactly big data is and how it can affect your business. The word big data usually conjures images of social media site servers and large scale federal agencies, however that's really only a small piece of the puzzle. Forbes contributor Lisa Arthur says that big data, "is a collection of data from traditional and digital sources inside and outside your company that represents a source for ongoing discovery and analysis."
The digital sources are what is most commonly attributed to the understanding of big data. The traditional side of the spectrum refers to all data from legacy, relational, cloud, and other database sources which are still very much a part of big data. What big data players such as Hadoop does, is essentially store all the digital and traditional data files that are too large for your enterprises servers.
