ABSTRACT: Big Data Quadfecta
A successful Big Data platform combines distributed processing and polyglot persistence into a single cohesive infrastructure. Over the past few years, Health Market Science has transitioned from traditional relational databases and enterprise systems to a massively scalable Big Data platform that combines Cassandra and Storm to ingest thousands of feeds of data from the health market industry to produce a single high-quality masterfile. Hear how we applied event processing and NoSQL to deliver real-time analytics, while accommodating structural change over time, and fuzzy/geospatial search.
