Data has become far too precious to discard. Today, we have numerous cost-effective ways to store, manage data at scale and analyze it within realistic timelines. On the other hand, Big Data/Hadoop implementations are also beginning to intimidate as they have scaled up and provide a maze of Operational Metadata Management, Data Ingestion Frameworks, Web Crawlers, Semantic Layer Building Frameworks, Data Quality Frameworks and HTML5 User Interfaces. Therefore, be warned as a business because, if you don’t overcome these challenges now, they will come back to haunt you soon enough.
For several months now, Wipro has been re-creating the frameworks required for Big Data implementations across different global clients and industries. It didn’t take us long to figure out that it would be of real value for enterprises, if we could develop an industry-agnostic set of frameworks that could be configured like Lego blocks, depending on specific requirements. And that is when we created our Big Data Ready Enterprise (BDRE) Framework. The BDRE framework essentially helps enterprises save thousands of laborious and expensive man-hours in deploying the technology. In addition, keeping the customization aspect in mind, we have developed this as an Open Source platform that allows enhancement and tweaks by the open source community. (The project including some demo videos is hosted on Github for reference and documentation on installation, architecture.) Below is a snapshot of the BDRE architecture:
