What is Big Data Engineering
A Big Data Engineer is a pioneer in the trendy field of data analysis. The ‘Big’ part refers to data that represents entire populations and sometimes the entire World. For the first time in history, engineers of big data can reveal to us many incredible facts about the World by linking data across historical time periods and countries.
In order to control the huge volumes of data they face, engineers in this field must have very strong analysis skills and tools. Algorithms are the biggest weapon that Big Data Engineers possess and are growing in their importance. Most algorithms are implemented using software of some type, with the Engineer adding their own influence and thinking to turn algorithms from equations into a form of magic.
Due to the recent focus on AI and future technologies, Big Data is a field that is increasing in importance and popularity.
