Big data is in full swing and it’s time for your business — big or small — to get in on the action.
But, where do you begin? There’s no easy choice for which service and provider is right for you and your business. And while the variety of options may seem daunting at first, once you understand the company’s goal with big data, you’ll be grateful for them.
After deciding to implement big data, you’ll want to decide whether to store data on site or in the cloud. Being realistic with the purpose for implementing big data and what resources are currently available, will go a long way in determining which storage option will best meet your company’s goals.
There are advantages and disadvantages to each. How much do you and your team want to be involved in the data gathering and storing process? On-premise storing generally means that you employ an IT team to monitor and fix any issues that arise. It gives you more control over the data, but also more liability for anything that goes wrong.
