Big data is becoming huge business for many reasons. Users are finding the value in the power big data brings. In a world where about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every single day, it can be a challenge applying all the usual methodologies and technologies to releasing the value of that data at such scale. IT ProPortal brought this news to our attention in their article, “How the right data lineage tools can cinch data integrity in a big data environment.”

Unfortunately, with big data often comes big noise. The more information you have the more chance that some of that information might be corrupted in some way.

One of the best solutions for managing big data overall is also one that builds in a way to ensure data integrity – ensuring a full data lineage by automating data ingestion. This creates a clear path showing how data has been used over time, as well as its origins.
