An architecture framework establishes a common practice for creating, interpreting, analyzing and using architecture descriptions within a particular domain of application or stakeholder community (ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010). The Big Data Architecture Framework (BDAF) is an architecture framework for Big Data solutions, aimed at helping manage a set of discrete artifacts and implementing a collection of specific design elements. BDAF enforces the adherence to a consistent design approach, reduce the system complexity, enhance loose-coupling, maximize reuse, decrease the dependencies, and increase productivity. BDAF comprises four integral parts: Domain-specific, Enablement-dependent, Platform-agnostic, and Technology-neutral (DEPT). Domain-specific model: a verticalized instantiation tailored to an associated industry sector or line of business Enablement-dependent model: ... (more)

Big Data, Big Service, and Big Ecosystem

In a recent panel session I chaired, a question was raised from audience in the Q&A part about how to relate Big Data and Big Service. There are basically two aspects in this: Big Data as a Service, and Big Data for Big Service. Big Data as a Service: BDaaS is to a large extent Big Data cloudification. We build Big Data as a capability to collect, transform, import, store, process, query, analyze, explore, predict, export, search,visualize, and display a large amount of data. Then we expose this capability as a service in a SaaS fashion, so users can leverage it to quickly solve... (more)

Big Data Capability Model

A capability model is a structure that represents the core abilities and competencies of an entity (department, organization, person, system, and technology) to achieve its objectives, especially in relation to its overall mission and functions. The Big Data Capability Model (BDCM) is defined as the key functionalities in dealing with Big Data problems and challenges. It describes the major features, behaviors, practices and processes in an organization, which can reliably and sustainably produce required outcomes for Big Data demands. BDCM consist of the following elements: Coll... (more)
