BIGDATA and Cloud-based Analytics

Data is multiplying at a faster rate than we have ever seen. It's not just for businesses anymore, but individual's now utilize the power of data analytics to better enhance many areas of their own lives.

Back in May 2012, Google opened up public access to their BigQuery data analytics service, seeing the public demand to enhance their business' needs.

Cloud services have continued to see a rise in the tech community, and eventually it will become mainstream. It's only a matter of time.
