    Will the Big Data replace Data Warehouse technology? The experts say no.

    However, Big Data will change the way we look at data. Good article, nice summary.

    Hi,

    I can recommend this book to understand the Big Data fundamentals: Big Data by Nathan Marz and James Warren[/url]

    And then just try to make your hands dirty and download a preconfigured virtual machine with Hadoop, follow the tutorials and do it by yourself.

    I can recommend the Hortonworks Sandbox and its learning material, but you should also take a look at different options like MapR M7 or Cloudera CDH4, etc.

    Have fun

    Thank you for this article about big data. I woud like to know where IBM's flagship database IMS would fit in as it is also a file based system and is non relational ?

    This is hands down the best big data article I have read in some time. We'll done sir, very informative yet concise. 5 stars!

    Not a bad article. This may be pedantic, but I am very hesitant to use the word "unstructured" when discussing data of any kind. "unstructured" data is simply noise - there is no information there. Data, by definition, has structure, even if it's a just a stream of log data or tweets.
