Big data and mass analytical processing have gained a prime position over the past years in business and have touched almost all domains of society. According to the famous Gartner “3Vs” definition, big data deals with Volume, Velocity and Variety. It enables organizations to exploit information that was previously ignored because there was no reasonable way to process it. One talks about the big data revolution but underpinning this revolution is the capacity to process unstructured data such as written documents, images, audio and videos which make up more than 80 percent of available data today. The WebLab platform aims at building systems providing intelligence solutions from the processing of open source data. Such systems face three major challenges: • Managing large amounts of unstructured data, • Managing the data diversity with the appropriate combination of processing tools , • Allowing the most effective tools to be selected for each processing step. Like Big Data, WebLab addresses intelligence needs and deals with Volume, Variety and Velocity. Can we therefore say that Big Data and WebLab face the same challenges? In fact, it can be argued that Big Data and WebLab are complementary. How can we benefit, then, from the best of both worlds?
