It is just what it sounds like – an immense amount of data.  From social networks to genomics to medical records, big data is everywhere and rapidly growing. Technology must adapt and advance in the management of big data – otherwise these large data sets would be rendered useless without the capability to efficiently analyze and produce results. Federal agencies have announced $200 million in research and development investments that will allow them to mine, process and store big data. …
