Big data is a field that treats ways to analyze, systematically extract information from, or otherwise deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. 1
Data is getting larger, more complex, and moving faster than ever - a growth that is largely spurred by the widespread adoption of cloud computing.
With so many computers around the world connecting and transmitting data via the cloud, the challenge for developers is how to harness enormous amounts of data in a meaningful way.
