Big Data, in its simple definition, refers to a phenomenon where digital data explodes both in volume and variety. Data systems were required to go in tandem with this trend by ingesting various data formats, processing large data timely, and allowing users to freely access necessary data so that they can develop business solutions through experiments. These are major aspects of big data platform, a data system of today.
Big data platform has different architecture compared to its predecessor containing new components so as to accommodate these new requirements. The above diagram is one typical example.
Since big data platform is a complex mixture of many components, data engineering of today necessitates not only technical understanding in each component but also comprehensive view over the entire workflow to integrate all the components.
