Every day, at least 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are getting created. Also it is estimated that the percentage of unstructured data is much higher than the structured. Big data related technologies offer methods and platforms for processing huge amount of structured and unstructured data. By 2015, it is estimated that 4.4 million IT jobs globally will be created to support big data.
