July 21, 2017 – 10:06 pm | Comments Off on 75 Big Data terms everyone should know

This article is a continuation of my first article, 25 Big Data terms everyone should know. Since it got such an overwhelmingly positive response, I decided to add an extra 50 terms to the list.  Just to give you a quick recap, I covered the following terms in my first article: Algorithm, Analytics, Descriptive analytics, Prescriptive analytics, Predictive analytics, Batch processing, Cassandra, Cloud computing, Cluster computing, Dark Data, Data Lake, Data mining, Data Scientist, Distributed file system, ETL, Hadoop, In-memory computing, IOT, Machine learning, Mapreduce, NoSQL, R, Spark, Stream processing, Structured Vs. Unstructured Data.

Big Data
