Big Data Management Architecture :

Before we delve into the architecture, it is important to take into account the functional requirements for big data.

Life cycle to be followed:

First the data must be captured, and then organized and integrated. Once this phase is successfully implemented, data can be analyzed based on the problem being addressed. Finally, management takes action based on the outcome of that analysis.
