In last year’s DZone Guide to Big Data Processing, we collected survey data from our advanced developer audience to gather insights on how large datasets get, how many messages get processed per second, and how many nodes developers let their data processing clusters contain. We amalgamated all of this information into…

Next Century Spirits is a liquor technology startup with $9.6 M in funding. The company uses big data and machine learning to create and filter bespoke…

Big data has immense value, but there is little doubt it remains extremely vulnerable to hackers and malicious actors. Billions of people have had their personal information compromised in recent years, and the tech industry is actively seeking to increase cybersecurity efforts and find more efficient ways to protect big data before breach issues get even more out of hand. The answer may lie in using the power of big data to protect itself. It may sound…
