Big data automation can mean writing dozens of scripts to process different
input sources and aligning them in order to consolidate all this data and
produce the required output.
Why exactly do you need big data for your enterprise projects? Many industry
observers have been noting that although a lot of enterprises like to claim

human intuition with data-driven alternatives, in reality though, the
objective appears to be automation. They point out that the role of data
scientists at a lot of organizations has got little to do with replacing
human intuition with big data. Instead, it is about augmenting human
experience by making it easier, faster and more efficient.
But automating big data processing is easier said than done and the biggest
problem here is that big data is well big. What thi... (more)

Only one publication in the world has been tracking Cloud Computing 24x7
since December 6, 2006, when we first mentioned the concept in an article

In this article, we take a look at the basic interoperability requirements
when communicating with the Cloud, and in particular at techniques and
standards used to express and enforce wire-level contracts between
communicating parties, as these parties are increasingly also contracting
parties in a Cloud environment. Many standards already developed for Web
services and service-oriented architectures provide to the communicating
parties a good understanding and control of the expected quality of service
at the most basic level of the interaction.
