Derek Long, Ericsson India head – Communication Services & Mobile Broadband says big-data technology is an important part of the puzzle for Indian telecom operators wanting to leverage value from the large volumes of data in their possession in a cost-efficient way.
Ericsson’s Derek Long says applying big-data technologies has the side effect of transferring some complexity from the database to the application.
When does data get big? People, devices and things are constantly generating massive volumes of data. At work people create and consume data, as do children at home, students at school, as well as people and objects whether stationary or on the move.
