Big data management is a hot topic today, because big data delivers tremendous new value to the enterprise, across a wide variety of industries and verticals. Though the value of big data is now well accepted and understood, big data processing is still in its infancy. There is still a lot to learn; that's why I believe this handbook is so timely and useful. A big data practitioner will benefit from the complete and detailed descriptions and excellent explanations of various components and the tradeoffs of cost, design complexity, programming paradigm, and how it all fits together.I have been associated with and worked at Oracle for a long time. Besides the excellent technology that Oracle produces, I continue to be amazed and impressed by Oracle's ability to repeatedly adapt to new trends and embrace new concepts and technologies to deliver compelling data management solutions to the market. This is perhaps the most important reason for Oracle's enduring success in the market. Perhaps, this is also the most important reason why anyone interested in big data should read this book. If you are a user of Oracle technologies, you'll learn about how to extend your Oracle investment to encompass big data processing. If you're not an Oracle user, you might discover important technologies and approaches to enhance your big data projects. In either case, you will benefit!This book is about Oracle's big data offerings. As usual, Oracle has delivered a well thought-out, well integrated and comprehensive solution to the market and the authors have done a stellar job of describing Oracle's big data solutions. Processing big data involves several complementary technologies, each requiring different skills and expertise.
