Storing this data without using it in any sense is simply waste of storage space and storing time. Data should be processed to extract some useful knowledge from it. This paper describes the journey of big data starting from data mining to web mining to big data. It discusses each of this method in brief and also provides their applications. It states the importance of mining big data today using fast and novel approaches.
