Big Data Management and Processing
(Chapman & Hall/CRC Big Data Series)
CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, USA

Data are being generated at exponential rate all over the world, and organizations are storing and processing exponentially increased large amounts of data. Recently, they have to re-think about and figure out how to do this efficiently and effectively. Through evolving algorithms and analytics techniques, organizations can harness data, discover hidden patterns, and use the derived knowledge to act meaningfully for competitive advantages. Book co-editors intend to invite experts and successful case participating members to contribute discussions on topics for data gathering and management as well as processing.

This book intends to bridge the gap between huge amount of data and appropriate computational/management methods for scientific discovery, and to bring together technologies for media/data communication, elastic media/data storage, and cross-network media/data fusion. The book also aims at interesting applications involving Big Data.

Target Audience

This book can prove useful to researchers, professors, research students and practitioners, as it will report novel research work on challenging topics in the area of Big Data management and processing. Researchers and professionals in Data Centers, Storage, Indexing, Security, and Applications Industry are also targets in the pool of potential readers.
