Harness the Power of Big Data - The IBM Big Data Platform
by Paul Zikopoulos, Dirk deRoos, David Corrigan, Tom Deutsch, Krishnan Parasuraman, James Giles
Information about book:
Big Data represents a new era of computing – an inflection point of opportunity where data in any format may be explored and utilized for breakthrough insights - whether that data is in-place, in-motion, or at-rest. IBM is uniquely positioned to help clients navigate this transformation. This book reveals how IBM is leveraging open source Big Data technologies, infused with deep IBM innovation from over 6 billion dollars in analytics acquisitions, that manifest in a platform capable of 'changing the game'.
In this book you will also learn not just about the technologies that make up the IBM Big Data platform, but when to leverage its purpose built engines for analytics on data in-motion and data at-rest. And you’ll gain an understanding of how and when to govern big data, and how IBM’s industry-leading InfoSphere integration and governance portfolio helps you understand, govern, and effectively utilize big data. Industry use cases are also included in this practical guide.
