What is BigQuery?

β€’ More and more companies are looking to unlock business insights from their data.

β€’ But it can be hard to scalably ingest, store, and analyze that data as it rapidly grows.

β€’ Google's enterprise data warehouse, BigQuery, was designed to make large-scale data analysis accessible to everyone.

β€’ BigQuery can help you get valuable insights from your data with ease.

Let’s understand it from the root level!!!

If you're a developer, data analyst, or just about anyone else, you're probably working with data.
If your business has small amounts of data, you might be able to store it in a spreadsheet.
But as your amount of data grows to gigabytes, terabytes, or even petabytes, you start to need a more efficient system like a data warehouse.
That's because all that data isn't very useful unless you have a way to analyze it.
Traditionally, larger sets of data mean longer times between asking your questions and getting answers.

Have you ever needed to wait hours or days for an analytics report to be run?

BigQuery was designed to handle massive amounts of data, such as log data from thousands of retail systems or IoT data from millions of vehicle sensors across the globe.

It's a fully managed and serverless data warehouse which empowers you to focus on analytics instead of managing infrastructure.
