In this electronic age, increasing number of organizations are facing the problem of explosion of data and the size of the databases used in today's enterprises has been growing at exponential rates. Data is generated through many sources like business processes, transactions, social networking sites, web servers, etc. and remains in structured as well as unstructured form.
