In the Big Data ecosystem, the datasets are too voluminous and complex
to apply the traditional data management and processing application
techniques. Hence, the concept of Big Data Management comes into the
picture which consists of the policies, procedures, and technology used for
data governance, organization, data cataloguing, master data
management of large repositories of data.
The major data-related challenges faced by the organizations are data
silos (with different business units and processes using different
applications with different data stores), fast-growing data, complex data
architectures, quality of data, resource crunch in managing the huge
volume of data on a regular basis, etc. Hence it is necessary to have the
Big Data Management in place.
Big Data Management helps an organization by increasing efficiency,
saving cost, enabling new use cases and an overall data-friendly
ecosystem which provides competitive advantages.
