Companies need to deal with Big Data using the right tools to remain competitive in order to avoid major challenges.
Troy, MI (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Insight allows business leaders to make better informed decisions. The amount of information that is being generated today is staggering, especially data acquired from outside sources. Data is both structured and non-structured from sources that have multi-layered architectures and interconnected applications. Big Data Management takes all this into account and allows businesses to derive better insight and make real-time decisions. Big Data is becoming big business as the magnitude of data being produced each day continues to escalate, along with the need to handle it all.
X-ology magazine asked a handful of trendsetters in the state’s IT industry to give their take on the future. Big Data is big business. A worldwide Gartner survey of IT leaders reveals that 42% of respondents had invested in big data technology or were planning to do so within a year. Big Data may hold the key to more profitable and well-run companies, smarter cities, faster medical breakthroughs, greater academic learning, more efficient use of resources and jobs.
Dave Behen, CIO, State of Michigan, indicated to X-ology that he believes in reinventing Michigan through IT. He believes that we can use technology to bring service to the customer instead of making the customer come to us. And Big Data solutions will no doubt play a major role in this process.
Norman Kutemperor, CEO of Scientel was interviewed by X-ology for their take on today's Big Data landscape. Big Data can be any data that either is or stands a chance of exceeding the capacity of IT systems to handle in terms of volume, velocity, variety and variability. Such data can originate inside or outside of your organization. Historically, structured data has been generated by most organizations. It has been handled mainly by SQL relational database management systems. However, Big Data includes both structured and unstructured data. Unstructured data comes in at random and mostly in random formats from websites, e-mails, blogs and smart devices. NoSQL DBMSs are being increasingly deployed to handle the exponentially increasing rate of structured and unstructured big data being created today.
According to Kutemperor, unstructured data is especially difficult to manage without the proper tools/capabilities. Big Data is typically 20+ terabytes of structured data, 1+ terabyte of unstructured data, or large amounts of data derived from outside sources or any combination of these. His company has been focused on IT for more than 30 years and was first in the market with a true comprehensive-capability NoSQL DBMS. GENSONIX can be viewed as an all-in-one SQL type of all data management system utilizing NoSQL technology designed to prepare companies for the big data arena.
GENSONIX can support transaction DBs of > TRILLION records, incorporating several TRILLIONS of data elements organized in column structures, network structures, etc., with real-time query capabilities. GENSONIX has built-in intrinsic functions, array processing capabilities and with recursive database sequencing, it allows large numbers of data elements to be processed at high speeds. Supporting a large data repository, GENSONIX can employ a 2-step analytical process of the entire data set versus the standard 5-step process with conventional DBMS systems. As a result, businesses can perform high performance analytics and derive end results FAST, up to 20-25 times faster when compared to standard methodologies.
About Scientel Information Technology, Inc.
Scientel Information Technology, Inc. is a U.S.-based, international, systems technology company, operational since 1977. Scientel also designs/produces highly optimized high end servers, which can be bundled with its "GENSONIX® ENTERPRISE" DBMS software, as a single-source supplier of complete systems for Big Data environments. Scientel also customizes hardware and software for specific applications resulting in higher performance.
Scientel's specialty is advanced NoSQL DBMS design and applications/systems integration for advanced business processes. This includes applications for Big Data, commercial intranets, Supply Chain management, IT consulting, support, etc., along with “beyond mainframe-level” Large Data Warehouse Appliance hardware/systems.
GENSONIX® allows very user-friendly data manipulation capabilities found in standard, SQL-based, database management systems, but it goes beyond. It is truly an "ALL-in-One SQL" — an “All Data Management System” in the form of an ultra-flexible, NoSQL DBMS of perfectly general capabilities and application potentials. It can also function in concert with mainline SQL systems to efficiently handle both structured and unstructured data as a large data warehouse repository. However, it can handle heavy database loads by itself with the aid of the GENSONIX® NSQL©™ query/procedural language. GENSONIX® supports both telnet as well as http interfaces. GENSONIX® is capable of handling trillions of rows/transactions for billions of customers, which is a huge advantage in “truly Big Data” structured applications.
Business customers can take advantage of Scientel’s capabilities in advanced Business Intelligence and Visual Data Analytics to grow their business by handling Big Data more cost-effectively and with greater insights to remain competitive. Scientific, government, and similar organizations can use these capabilities to efficiently process Big Data, instead of being swamped by it.
