Transforming Big Data Into Big Value

If you talk to five people working on big data projects, you'll hear about 50 kinds of big data they're using. Sometimes volume is the biggest issue, sometimes unstructured data, sometimes ordinary data flooding the system in real time. Support for big data can mean many different things to different people.
