The simultaneous rise of cloud, social and mobile computing has created an explosion of new data. This explosion has rapidly overwhelmed the capacity of existing information systems, creating intense demand for new technologies designed to manage the flood of data created by businesses, consumers, and automatic sensors. Thanks to the astonishingly fast growth of mobile social networking, much of the new data created is unstructured. Traditional methods for handling structured data are simply inadequate, inefficient and ineffective for managing the torrent of unstructured data generated by hundreds of millions of consumers and individuals worldwide.
