Data Just Right

By: Michael Manoochehri

This article is an excerpt from Data Just Right: Introduction to Large-Scale Data & Analytics, a completely practical guide for every Big Data decision-maker, implementer, and strategist. Michael Manoochehri, a former Google engineer and data hacker, writes for people who need practical solutions that can be implemented with limited resources and time. Drawing on his extensive experience, he helps you focus on building applications, rather than infrastructure, because that's where you can derive the most value. Manoochehri shows how to address each of today's key Big Data use cases in a cost-effective way by combining technologies in hybrid solutions.
