09.03.2015: Talk: "Big Data - Hype and Reality" (Dr. C. Mohan) at 16:00 in Room MA-041 (Math Building), TU Berlin

Big Data has become a hot topic in the last few years in both industry and the research community. For the most part, these developments were initially triggered by the require- ments of Web 2.0 companies. Both technical and non-technical issues have continued to fuel the rapid pace of developments in the Big Data space. Open source and non-traditional software entities have played key roles in the latter. As it always happens with any emerg- ing technology, there is a fair amount of hype that accompanies the work being done in the name of Big Data. The set of clear-cut distinctions that were made initially between Big Data systems and traditional database management systems are being blurred as the needs of the broader set of (real world) users and developers have come into sharper focus in the last couple of years. In this talk, I will survey the developments in Big Data and try to distill reality from the hype!
