What is Big Data?
Big data is when the volume, velocity and/or variety of data gets to the point where it is too difficult or expensive for traditional systems to work with.
Volume:Data coming in from new sources as well as increased regulation in multiple areas means storing larger sets of data for longer periods of time.
Variety:Unstructured and semi-structured data is becoming as strategic as traditional structured data and is growing at faster rates.
Velocity:Social media, RFID, machine data, etc. are needing to be ingested at speeds not even imagined a few years ago.
Market For Big data
The big data and analytics market will reach $125 billion worldwide in 2015, according to IDC.
The Big Data technology and services market represents a fast-growing multibillion-dollar worldwide opportunity. In fact, a recent IDC forecast shows that the Big Data technology and services market will grow at a 26.4% compound annual growth rate to $41.5 billion through 2018, or about six times the growth rate of the overall information technology market.
Big data revenue will reach $135 billion by the end of 2019

What is Hadoop
Hadoop is a High Performance Super Computer environment that is horizontally scalable with commodity hardware . Hadoop does parallel processing across data nodes on a highly available distributed file system.
Compare Traditional Systems vs. Hadoop
Data Types Structured & Multi and unstructured
Speed Read as Fast & Write as Fast
Schema Required on write & Required on read
Interactive OLAP Analytics ,Complex ACID Transactions,Operational Data Store & Data Discovery,Processing unstructured data,Massive Storage/Processing
