    A realistic view of Data in the business world.

    DJ Patil has managed to distill an extremely complex set of ideas involving "Data" in the enterprise and using these very concepts to make viable systems to impact a business forcefully. Well structured for the most part but and impactful languaging. If your intrigue about "Big Data" this can prove to be a great starting place.
