Problem: An organization likely has more than one type of data being stored. With a wide data range, a system needs to be organized so it can be used in a meaningful way. Not having processing logic sent close to stored data can be a problem, according to big data expert Dr. Satya Ramaswamy.
Solution: Manual design and programming, said Gartner's Doug Laney, is the only way to directly deal with a broad data range. Ramaswamy said architects need to ensure their design takes into account data location for processing logic so that big data can be used to its full capacity.
