|Table - Classification of Big Data Technologies|
|Big data deployment interdependencies|
If you are a big data novice start with the table, figure out the technology options that are in-play for your situation. Once you have narrowed down the options, research some more. Hint- Infoivy.com is a good starting place.
Deciding the options to use is never easy but once you do have made the decision, use the dependency chart to figure the deployment stack that you would need for the options chosen. Word of caution - not all stacks can be deployed - at least not yet. So, before you jump into the big data pit check with people who might know more than you but make your own decisions. Remember all decisions come up with a price -- the most expensive one being time especially if you are on a tight timeline. Choose wisely!
