    The internet has leaped off the traditional RDBMS and multitier architecture into hyperscale distributed systems. I have skilled up in Hadoop, Map Reduce and other 'big data' toolsets so that i can fulfill web-scale analytics and processing tasks.

    Currently a very low percentage of useful data is only analysed as most of the useful data is in the "unstructured format". Hence a need of analysing all useful data in whatever form it exists.

    It's vital to keep current and curate our careers. For me personally, I'm focusing on the mobile space as well as the ways that apps communicate with each other via public APIs.
