Big data essentially refers to a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large that it's difficult to process using traditional database and software techniques. Data that is too big or moves too fast or exceeds current processing capacity is Big Data and insights garnered from this data, has the potential to help companies improve operations and make faster, more intelligent decisions.
Today, companies are adopting Big Data initiatives at a rapid pace and as such hiring is robust. The Economist estimates that the market for Big Data will surpass $100 billion, as more and more data and data sources come online each year. By 2015, 4.4 million IT jobs globally will be created to support Big Data.
