Understanding Big Data: e-book

Big data is going to change the way you do things in the future, how you gain insight, and make decisions (the change isn’t going to be a replacement, rather a synergy and extension). This book will help you get  up to speed quickly on this technology and to show you the unique things IBM is doing to turn the freely available open source big data technology into a big data platform; there’s a major difference and the platform is comprised of leveraging the open source technologies (and never forking it) and marrying that to enterprise capabilities provided by a technology leader that understands the benefits a platform can provide.
