Big Data is now highly regarded and accepted as a useful tool to help organizations manage their data and information effectively and efficiently. This new volume, The Emerging Technology of Big Data: Its Impact as a Tool of ICT Development, looks at the new technology that has emerged to meet the growing need and demand and studies the impact of Big Data in several areas of today’s society, including social media, business process re-engineering, science, e-learning, higher education, business intelligence, and green computing.

In today’s modern society, information system (IS) through Big Data contributes to the success of organizations because it provides a solid foundation for increasing both efficiency and productivity. Many business organizations and educational institutions realize that compliance with Big Data will affect their prospects for success. Everyday, the amount of data collected from digital tools grows tremendously. As the amount of data increases, the use of IS becomes more and more essential.

The book looks at how large datasets and analytics have slowly crept into the world of education and discusses methods of teaching and learning and the collection of student-learning data.

The final chapter of the book considers the environmental impacts of ICT and emphasizes green ICT awareness as a corporate strategy through information systems. The global ICT industry accounts for approximately 2 percent of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and the manufacture, shipping, and disposal of ICT equipment also contributes environmentally. This chapter addresses these issues.

The information provided here will be valuable information for education professionals, businesses, faculty, scientists and researchers, and others.
