This is a PHP client for working with Google APIs, including BigQuery. BigQuery is a data querying API that leverages Google's significant processing power with SQL-like commands against append-only tables for fast results. Developers should note that this official PHP SDK is in Beta and requires PHP 5.2.1 or higher and PHP JSON extension.
Now-a-days every single CIO, CTO, or business executive that I speak to is captivated by these three new technologies: Big Data, API management and IoTs (Internet of Things). Every single organizational executive that I speak with confirms that they either have current projects that are actively using these technologies, or they are in the planning stages and are about to embark on the mission soon.
Organizations of all sizes are starting to appreciate that there is a wealth of information starting to flow in and out of their companies via the APIs they decided to expose to third-parties. Now those organizations can start figuring out how to derive some value out of all that data.
