Analysis of Big Data allows analysts, researchers and business users to make better and faster decisions using data that was previously inaccessible or unusable. Big data and analytics have brought an entirely new era of data-driven insights to companies in all industries. Big data analytics is the use of advanced analytic techniques against very large, diverse data sets that include structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, from different sources, and in different sizes.

Businesses can use advanced analytics techniques such as text analytics, machine learning, predictive analytics, data mining, statistics and natural language processing to gain new insights from previously untapped data sources independently or together with existing enterprise data. Those who skilled in traditional business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing (DW) represent a fantastic pool of resources to help businesses adopt this new generation of technologies.
