Efficiency of JSON for Data Retrieval in Big Data

Mohd Kamir Yusof


Big data is the latest industry buzzword to describe large volume of structured and unstructured data that can be difficult to process and analyze. Most of organization looking for the best approach to manage and analyze the large volume of data especially in making a decision. XML is chosen by many organization because of powerful approach during retrieval and storage processes. However, XML approach, the execution time for retrieving large volume of data are still considerably inefficient due to several factors. In this contribution, two databases approaches namely Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Java Object Notation (JSON) were investigated to evaluate their suitability for handling thousands records of publication data. The results showed JSON is the best choice for query retrieving speed and CPU usage. These are essential to cope with the characteristics of publication’s data. Whilst, XML and JSON technologies are relatively new to date in comparison to the relational database. Indeed, JSON technology demonstrates greater potential to become a key database technology for handling huge data due to increase of data annually.
