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.
