Why Applications For Big Data?
Big Data is only valuable when it's transparent to a business process or practical for the end user. A Big Data application provides this usability, as it connects that last step of a Big Data journey – from the back-end data/analytics layer to the front-end application layer. The faster you cycle through the process of capturing data generated from Big Data applications, derive insight from these newer datasets, and deliver results through continuous application iteration and delivery, the more competitive you are.
Pivotal CF, the industry leading Big Data PaaS, provides the software agility needed to cycle through this process, enabling developers to automatically provision back-end infrastructure services for front-end application development, deployment, and management, ensuring Big Data applications perform seamlessly throughout the application lifecycle.
