Big data is not a single product or component – it’s an umbrella of technologies and products. You can't really harness the power of big data with a single product. You need a solution that encompasses multiple technologies, and a toolbox to integrate them.

While every big data solution is intrinsically different, the requirements are largely the same: a) ingest high velocity data, b) store large volumes of it, and c) extract information from it. Depending on the solution, low latency, performance, and throughput can be key requirements.

The most innovative big data solutions use streaming to move operational data between ingestion points, storage systems and analytical platforms. Any big data solution will need a scalable, high performance database. What else will be required? That's up to you.
