Big data is data that exceeds the processing capacity of conventional database systems. The data is too big, moves too fast, or doesn’t fit the strictures of your database architectures. To gain value from this data, you must choose an alternative way to process it.

The aim of this book is to help you understand what big data is, why it matters, and where to get started. If you’re already working with big data, hand this book to your colleagues or executives to help them better appreciate the issues and possibilities.
