Wikipedia terms Big Data as “a field that treats ways to analyze, systematically extract information from, or otherwise deal with data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software.” Big data plays a very important role in today’s digital era. Industries spend huge amounts to gather big data in sets. Such data can range from web analytics, customer or transactional information, system monitoring, and so on.

Compared to the traditional age, the collection of data has now been amazingly extensive – more than 1000 times. Thus the medium has also changed. The conventional mode of using servers was not only expensive but was failure-oriented as well. This has led most of the industries to shift to cloud solutions where getting access to the data sets is easy, way less time consuming, and also, accurate.

The leaders of a company spend a lot of time in the understanding of data sources, its storage system, and how to build an environment of agile business based on those sets. Companies strive to merge all the data sources to come up with an actionable movement, thus bringing out the best outcome. For instance, companies can combine their customer purchase data with credit score providers; after that, they can remarket their products/services to consumers with their customized financial offerings.

Data feeds, like that of the RSS, XML, ODBC, or API database connections, are used by businesses to fetch data. They help in combining programming codes with data sets for the right identification while importing. They are very useful for the right data flow system. All the feeds are different from one another; it’s not about being better or worse. The choice of your company’s feed will solely depend on the IT team and your security needs.

Programming helps in data formatting to compile them into the dashboard. The evaluation of these data is then processed by the dashboard and are processed into graphs, charts, and other visual indicators. It allows businesses to decode everything and act accordingly.
