S-18 The Power of Big Data at Work LEARN MORE carahsoft.com/innovation/pentaho-analytics W HILE THE TERM “Big Data” has become a tired cliché, there are reasons why people inside and outside of technology are still talking about “Big Data” nearly a decade after the term was coined. Data volumes are growing exponentially and 80 percent of the data generated today is semi-structured and unstructured, which doesn’t lend itself to being stored in the rigid row and column format of traditional relational databases. While relational databases have ser ved us well for over 30 years, they are not the right solution for building moder n apps that are often running in the cloud and need to store, process, and extract insights from rapidly changing, multi-str uctured data generated by billions of sensors, mobile devices, and social net works. Additionally, government agencies must meet a number of regulations and are under increased pressure to be agile and responsive to new application demands. They also need to find ways to modernize and ser ve large audiences while working within the constraints of limited budgets. Fortunately, organizations are realizing the benefits of open source NoSQL technologies. With NoSQL, organizations can build applications faster; adapt to changes in their mission; easily scale to meet increases in demand; deliver an “always- on” experience to users; and attract top technical talent to their teams. “Big Data” as a term may be tired, but the underlying challenges associated with this trend are real. Harnessing this data opens the door for positive change. Open source technologies such as MongoDB are an important part of the way forward, and need to become part of the common vocabulary and tooling for every technology decision maker.
