BIG DATA IN TAMIL: OPPORTUNITIES, BENEFITS AND CHALLENGES

Abstract
This paper gives an overall introduction on big data and has tried to introduce Big Data in Tamil. It discusses the potential opportunities, benefits and likely challenges from a very Tamil and Tamil Nadu perspective. The paper has also made original contribution by proposing the ‘big data’s’ terminology in Tamil. The paper further suggests a few areas to explore using big data Tamil on the lines of the Tamil Nadu Government ‘vision 2023’. Whilst, big data has something to offer everyone, it is argued that Tamil language proficiency and favourable policy decision is key to the success of Big data in Tamil and more specifically in Tamil Nadu.
