The processing demands, data storage needs and associated costs to integrate BI big data analytics software were just too great for most organizations to even consider. But that’s all changing. The benefits and competitive advantages afforded by big data analytics are no longer limited to big companies with big budgets.

    In this special edition of Business Information, David Loshin walks readers through the buying process for big data analytics tools.
