Importance of unstructured dataGautam Goswami
In today’s world, Internet plays a major factor to generate and propagate information from various sources. Social media, Email, What’sApp, E-News Paper etc are playing a crucial role on circulation followed by creation of information. These type of information often include text and multimedia contents. These information or data methodically can’t be persisted in database and it is referred as unstructured data.
Due to advancement in technology, 70-80 % growing data is unstructured and increasing significantly over structured/semi structured data. Typically we store structured data and semi-structured data (after process) in traditional database but unstructured data can’t. Most of the organizations in today’s tough business environment have started analyzing unstructured data to take better business decision. Hadoop distributed file systems (HDFS) is an excellent framework to store unstructured data.
Here in (HDFS)we do not have to design schema in row column structure to accumulate data. Data can be ingested directly in HDFS and process eventually in a distributed manner to get desire result. The unstructured data is closely associate with term call “BIG DATA” which is tuning the entire world of information towards a new direction and Hadoop is enabling us to process thousand of petabyte of unstructured data.
