Big data is undoubtedly one of the hottest topics today considering its potential to impact almost every industry. Due to the costs involved, only enterprise-sized corporations with large budgets would usually do extensive data analysis. However, with a growing number of open source systems available, SMEs too can harness the potential of data.
