This chapter has discusses about the significance of the BigData especially from the context of the educational section. The discussion says that modern education systems are increasingly adopting cloud-services that lead to enormous rise of educational data. Such data are characterized by massiveness in size, high dimensionality, and 5 V of BigData. Owing to such problems, the educational data are not utilized after it is being stored. Although there are some of the research attempts towards educational datamining and BigData analytics, but still simplicity, preciseness, and validation of such framework is missing. Hence, the chapter introduces a simple operational management framework that can efficiently use the educational based BigData.
