Graph Analytics and Big Data

May 2, 2019

Graph analytics, which is an analytics alternative that uses an abstraction called a graph model. The simplicity of this model allows for rapidly absorbing and connecting large volumes of data from many sources in ways that finesse limitations of the source structures (or lack thereof, of course). Graph analytics is an alternative to the traditional data warehouse model as a framework for absorbing both structured and unstructured data from various sources to enable analysts to probe the data in an undirected manner. Big data analytics systems should enable a platform that can support different analytics techniques that can be adapted in ways that help solve a variety of challenging problems. This suggests that these systems are high performance, elastic distributed data environments that enable the use of creative algorithms to exploit variant modes of data management in ways that differ from the traditional batchoriented approach of traditional approaches to data warehousing

The era of Big Data is driving considerable changes in how healthcare organizations manage and use the varied types of data they acquire and store. The legacy Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), and Storage Area Network (SAN) infrastructure used by institutions today to create siloed data environments is too rigid to accommodate the demands for massive storage and analyses on a larger and wider variety of data. Forcing this legacy architecture into today’s enterprise requirements is costly and risky.

Top 5 Challenges for Hadoop MapReduce in the enterprise

Reporting and analysis drives businesses in making the best possible decisions. The source of all these decisions is the data. There are two types of data: structured and unstructured. Most recently, IT has struggled to deliver timely analysis through data warehousing architectures designed for batch processing. And these same architectures are now starting to fail under the load of rapidly rising data volumes and new data types that beg for a continuous approach to data processing. for a continuous approach to data processing. IT organizations need to adopt new ways to extract and analyze data. While existing data warehouses were built for structured data, unstructured data does not fit into the architectural mold. They need to break away from the structured data warehouse architectures of the past for the unstructured data because not all data can be molded to the structure, and there is too much of it. Moving and modifyin huge volumes of unstructured data can be too costly (or time consuming) to convert it into the necessary mold for extraction.

Big Data is not a definite term. Even if it sounds like just another buzz word, it manifests some interesting opportunities for organisations with the skill, resources and need to analyse humungous amounts of data. The challenge is twofold: (1) collect and access the data and (2) analyse the data. Technically, this means: It is not enough to store data and then manage it – storage, management and availability of data is one unified challenge.

Advanced ‘Big Data’ Analytics with R and Hadoop

Big Analytics delivers competitive advantage in two ways compared to the traditional analytical model. First, Big Analytics describes the efficient use of a simple model applied to volumes of data that would be too large for the traditional analytical environment. Research suggests that a simple algorithm with a large volume of data is more accurate than a sophisticated algorithm with little data. The algorithm is not the competitive advantage; the ability to apply it to huge amounts of data—without compromising performance—generates the competitive edge.
