Data is the information that drives business. It can be structured in rows and columns, like a customer name, address, and phone; and it can be unstructured, such as an email or a social media post. Structured data is what is populated in Relational Database Management Systems such as those created by Oracle, IBM and Microsoft, and open-source PostgreSQL and MySQL, among others. That data can be accessed using the standard Structured Query Language (SQL). Unstructured data resides in what are called NoSQL databases, such as Cassandra, Couchbase, MongoDB and many, many others. Many organizations today run both kinds of databases.

Once the data is stored, it must be easily retrievable, found amid the mountains of data organizations collect, and made available at scale. Numerous tools exist for those jobs, including Hadoop, Apache Spark and many more. It is through the collection and analysis of data that businesses can make decisions that affect their bottom line.
