Big Data Analytics

Big Data is a buzzword used to describe 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. In most enterprise scenarios the data is too big, it moves too fast or it exceeds current processing capacity.

An Example of Big Data Analytics

When dealing with large datasets, organizations face difficulties in being able to integrate, manipulate, and manage big data. Big data is particularly a problem in business analytics because standard tools and procedures are not designed to search and analyze massive datasets. Many attempts to use standard BI tools fail.

An international telecom company, which provides a complete voice, data and internet-based services portfolio to its more than 6 million customers, is using an innovative big data analytics technology, BIRT Analytics, to manage more than 1 Tb of data, 14 DBs and160 tables, daily. Current analytical CRM eases integrated analysis of data for accurate knowledge of each customer. Campaign micro-segmentation, customer loyalty, individually targeted offerings, contact optimization, customer matrix and churn analysis are now easy to perform.
