Powerful Discovery information Service tools for Big Data in institutions for higher education: A case study of KSA Universities

Dr. Mohammed A. Abdulla & Furkan Yousaf

The concept of discovery tools is growing tremendously within the environment of higher education institutions. In the presence of discovery tools,Big Data (BD) also represents an important stage in the development of information and communication technology systems. It reflects an enormouslylarge volume of BD that is larger than the capacity of traditional computer software and mechanisms to store, process and distribute.Thus the BD limiting information specialists to develop sophisticated alternative solutions that enable them to controlinformation, which can be termed as information discovery tools.

Based on the above KSA universities got the opportunity to establish discovery tools that help universities to control, organize and retrieve information and BD to benefit from them in achieving their educational and research objectives. This study comes in the search and disclosure of the powerful discovery tools to explore the information and data in currently implemented in KSA universities and to reveal their strength and effectiveness and the extent of discovery tools influence in the information literacy of the educational institution’s societies. While mentioning the barriers and obstacles facing KSA universities in dealing with BD. In the current scenario, many academic institutions in KSA still on process to accept and implementation of discovery tools to achieve their objectives.
