Big Data vs Small Data Strategies for Next Generation Business
The data market is booming with an ever increasing valuation. In the virtual data ocean, Big Data and small data are complementary strategies at one level and choices of scale/scope at a different level. While Big Data holds distant promises, leveraging “small data” can provide great benefits to small-to-medium business (SMB) as well as large corporations. Simply stated, the cost-performance barrier leaves many lucrative markets inadequately served by Big Data approaches. Carefully chosen data solutions and models should be more accurate, objective, and ultimately lead to improved ROI especially for more near-term time horizons and/or companies with limitations in scale/scope. This research provides the reader with an understanding of data management issues, challenges and o

Virtualization: Impact on Enterprise Networks and Cloud Infrastructure
Virtualization represents a game-changer in IT infrastructure planning, operations, and management as major components (servers, desktops, storage and even entire data centers) are virtualized. The recent trend is for virtualization of key network components (routers, switches, dedicated servers, etc.), which is referred to in the industry as Network Function Virtualization (NFV).   NFV completely changes the way network architecture is viewed as fixed network elements, consisting of hardware components that are diverse in their make and configuration, is no more the design that is the norm.  NFV allows an operator to optimize its infrastructure and increase service agility, representing a solution to problems that have plagued them for quite some time. NFV allows quicker time-

Big Data and Analytics in Government: Current Status and Future Prospects
The trend to migrate to Big Data technologies is driven by the need for additional information derivable from analysis of all of electronic data available to a business. Electronic data is unstructured and typically available via the Internet and other sources. Combined with the large volume of data collected by companies such as major financial companies, telecom network operators, and the United States Federal Government (“US Government”), this data represents a currently under-realized source of intelligence information. To realize the true potential to transform intelligence information from the huge amount of unstructured data, government agencies cannot leverage traditional data management technologies and DB techniques in terms of processing data.

Cloud Infrastructure Management: Companies and Solutions 2013
The cloud infrastructure ecosystem represents a large-scale distributed computing paradigm that is driven by economies of scale in which a pool of abstracted, virtualized, dynamically scalable, managed computing power, storage, platforms, and services are delivered on demand to external customers over the Internet. Cloud infrastructure is best known today for support for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). However, services delivery for both enterprise and consumers is evolving and cloud infrastructure is transforming with it to support an “Everything as a Service” (XaaS) environment in which virtually any/all applications are in the cloud and/or certain aspects of service delivery are virtualized and thereby
