Put simply, business and industry today relies solely on large sources of data, and the ability to interpret these effectively and efficiently to make decisions. A lot of this data will not be fully structured but still contains valuable information that needs discovering, such as emerging opinions in social networks, consumer purchase behaviour, trends from search engines, and patterns that emerge from such huge data sources.
