Submission + - The Notorious B.I.G. Data 1

theodp writes: When it comes to industry buzzwords, 2012 is shaping up to be the Year of Big Data. And to paraphrase the late Notorious B.I.G, writes Aberdeen's Mollie Lombardi, mo' data means mo' problems. In Taming The Big Data Tidal Wave, Teradata Chief Analytics Officer Bill Franks (aka Dr. Insight) offers execs and getting-up-to-speed techies a welcome look at what to do when Big Data opportunities knock. But in its effort to stay vendor-neutral, the book pretty much avoids name-dropping specific technologies. So, how about it — what specific open source or vendor software/hardware technology is your organization using to tame Big Data? Is anything working surprisingly better — or worse — than you originally thought it would?
