Big Data in Motion
Organizations of all shapes and sizes are finding that moving large data sets around presents a number of network challenges. So what are the problems, the solutions and the workarounds? In this SearchCIO handbook, we confront the obstacles posed by big data in motion. In our cover story, SearchCIO Senior News Writer Nicole Laskowski dives into the gigantic data sets in the biomedical research field, uncovering how top-level IT executives derive value from information on the move while vanquishing data bottlenecks.
Also in this handbook, Executive Editor Linda Tucci profiles Penn Medicine and its governance-heavy approach to managing big data and high-performance computing. Laskowski also delivers a report from the recent Strata Conference + Hadoop World, looking at Facebook's relational database and sharing the thoughts of big data leaders on the future of analytics.
