"Big Data" characterized by 5 Vs (volume, velocity, variety, veracity and value) has graduated from being a fad into an absolute necessity. Consequently, big data analytics has become ubiquitous in all fields of science, engineering, medicine, business
and management. This has been possible because of (i) the phenomenal rise in a variety of data-driven models across all forms of analytics-descriptive, predictive and prescriptive as well as (ii) the concomitant developments in data engineering wherein
parallel and distributed computational frameworks for ingesting and analyzing big data have been proposed. Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark are the two successful frameworks in this context. Further, many of the three forms of analytical models have
been made scalable (rendered amenable for distributed and parallel computation) in three ways: (i) horizontal (ii) vertical and (iii) hybrid. Horizontal parallelization refers to cluster computing where a master and host of slave nodes perform
computation in parallel. This involves both data and algorithm parallelization with the help of Hadoop or Spark frameworks. Vertical parallelization involves GPGPU programming where a single server has multiple GPU processors. Finally, hybrid
parallelization integrates both concepts with a cluster of GPU-based servers. Near real-time data analytics are the reality now with the availability of memory at cheaper prices. Several frameworks are currently available to achieve real time big data
analytics. However, there are still many potential issues that need to be addressed for big data processing and analytics in real time. Big Data Analytics using the Open Source frameworks such as Hadoop, Spark, Cassandra, MongoDB, etc. are at a massive
scale. This trend will continue to grow. This edited 2-volume handbook will present a large spectrum of contributions from methodologies of Big data analytics to applications. It is aimed at providing a unique platform for researchers, engineers,
developers, educators and students.
