Big Data is transforming the world and security is a huge concern. Following a pattern with sources, stream and consumption, it is important to understand the new challenges of handling large amounts of data in such a way that it is adding value to the end user. However it is also important to handle this information according the end user’s permissions and preferences which will become a key asset to be used by telecom/mobile applications. This presentation will show the trends and techniques Vodafone Xone is using to address the big data domain.
