Big Data

Big data depends on Linux because it’s a powerful scalable platform that allows analytical tools (many of them also open source) to process the huge amounts of data involved. Businesses produce more data than ever before now, but it’s only useful if it can be mined for insights. These days a company’s next efficiency improvement or revenue increase is as likely to come from new opportunities turned up by sifting through vast amounts of data than through launching a new product or service.
