Big Data Scenarios / Use Cases

Very often I do get the query `I know Hadoop, Hive, Pig etc. Where do I start using it?`. One quick way is to figure out what others had been doing in the domain of interest. This can be done in multiple ways:

1) Follow some of the Big Data related blogs like the ones from Cloudera, HortonWorks etc.  Some of the blogs do a good job of segregating blog entries into different categories as in the case of Cloudera.

2) Follow a Big Data aggregator like Planet Big Data and Big Data Made Simple. They don't have any original content, but act like a mere aggregator from various other places.

3) Kaggle has been the platform for holding Data Science competitions. Look at the description of the different challenges and also don't forget to follow their blog.
