Learning Goal: I’m working on a management writing question and need support to help me learn.What is “big data”? What are the most important drivers of big data?

IT organizations can now take advantage of tools such as Hadoop, NoSQL, and Gephi to rationalize, analyze and visualize Big Data in ways that enable them to quickly separate the actionable insight from the massive chaff of raw input. As an added bonus, many of these tools are available free under open source licensing.
