“Big Data at a glance” – Prof. Elio Masciari


Nowadays, the availability of huge amounts of data from heterogeneous sources, exhibiting different schemes and formats and being generated at very high rates, led to the definition of new paradigms for their management. This problem is known with the name of Big Data. As a consequence of new perspective on data, many traditional approaches to data analysis result inadequate both for their limited effectiveness and for the inefficiency in the management of the huge amount of available information.

Therefore, it is necessary to rethink both the storage and access patterns to big data as well the design of new tools for data presentation and analysis. In this course, main approaches for Big Data management will be reviewed.
