Behavioral analytics extracts patterns from structured and quasi-structured data. Those patterns reflect either the way that data itself tends to behave or the way that entities represented by the data tend to behave. Big data introduces system and infrastructure difficulties that IT specialists must resolve to launch a behavioral analytics system.
