The Scoop on Hadoop: Making Sense of “Big Data”

Big data hype is all around us and it’s hard not to jump on the “big data” bandwagon. Academic institutions face numerous challenges analyzing “big data.” The need to transport, process, and extract information from large sets of data, in terms of quantity and complexity, is becoming increasingly critical. Finding meaning from large and often unstructured data is currently difficult and time-consuming, and often outside the purview of traditional higher ed business intelligence departments. This presentation will describe how Arizona State University (ASU) is addressing the “big data” challenge from both an administrative and research standpoint. In addition to defining and describing big data, ASU will show how it is using big data technology and techniques to work with large and often unstructured data and show how it fits within their business intelligence (BI) architecture.
