Here’s a short video that was recorded at the IDUG conference, where I talk about the characteristics of Big Data solutions, discuss some of the technologies involved, and describe some real world Big Data solutions that IBM has implemented. Its a high-level introduction, but if you’re not sure what this “Big Data” term refers to, you may find it useful.
In the video, I try to quantify what “big” means today, as well as describing some lessons we have learned while implementing Big Data solutions. Technologies introduced include Map/Reduce systems, systems for analyzing streaming data, Massive Parallel Processing data warehouse systems, and in-memory database systems.
Those of you that know me in person, will see that I was a little under-the-weather when the video was recorded. You can hear it in my voice, see it in my demeanor, and notice it in my cadence. I hope you can get past this, and find this video useful.
