Techies Watch Out:Hot and Happening Technologies
5. Big Data
What is it? Big data, in Information technology, is the collection of datasets that consist of a number of varieties and formats of data. The said datasets are so large that it soon becomes awkward to work with the data contained in them using usual database management tools.
How hot is it? Almost as hot as the cloud. With increasing amounts of data, data analysts are researching new, more competent and efficient ways to deal with data. One popular technology in this field would be the Hadoop File system, which is helping to change the face of enterprise and business IT. Professionals are needed to mine, visualize and analyze big data, and this need is ever-growing.
How much does it pay? $108,000 per annum in Silicon Valley, and around $71,000 per annum in other parts of the US
