Big Data Analytics: Applications and Challenges
Data analytics is the discovery or interpretation of meaningful patterns and knowledge from raw data, and converts it into valuable information, which helps in effective decision-making. With the onset of the digital era and new technologies such as IoT and cloud computing, a huge repository of data in terabytes is generated daily. Analysis of such amounts of data requires advanced analytical tools to gain knowledge for better choice making. Hence, big data analytics is the current area of research and development. The analytics in big data means joining the dots and plotting the relationships among them. This paper aims to summarize various issues in the analytics of big data.
