What is Big Data?

"A buzzword, or catch-phrase, used to describe a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large that it's difficult to process with traditional database and software techniques."

- Webopedia

With the commoditization of processing power, storage capacity and cloud accessibility businesses are accumulating masses of data. Big Data data processes and analyzes this data quickly and cheaply without the need to invest in expensive infrastructure. Big Data Storage is moving over to NoSQL data-repositores.

About us

PDEV has a solid grounding and experience in traditional technologies: OO and RDBMS. But the technology landscape is shifting and PDEV has acquired competencies and pioneering developments in Big Data and Mobile Application Development.

PDEV was founded in 2003, with the advent of the Microsoft .NET platform. The PDEV founders had extensive previous experience in the IT industry both locally and globally. The initial focus was to introduce .NET to the Enterprise space within Southern Africa.

Since 2003, PDEV has delivered .NET Enterprise courses to more than 3000 developers in Southern Africa, and consulted to major corporations and developments houses (ISVs) within Southern Africa, the United Kingdom, Israel and Germany on developing projects for the enterprise using .NET.
