In this article, we look at several technologies that interact to extract valuable business information from “the noise” of big data. Big data offers the opportunity for businesses to obtain real-time business intelligence that they could never reach in the past from their typical internal systems. A big data analytics engine can mine social media, the press, email, blogs, videos, and a variety of other data sources to determine what customers are thinking, to plan new products, to find the strengths and weaknesses of competitors, to monitor fraud and cyber-attacks, and for many other purposes. Shadowbase replication capabilities can play a significant role in delivering inputs and outputs to key processes for analyzing big data. Wherever there is a need to transfer data from a source to a target, regardless of the nature of those devices, Shadowbase software solutions can be placed into service to get the job done efficiently and reliably.
