Title: MBigMDHealth: Supporting Multidimensional Big Data Management and
Analytics over Big Healthcare Data via Effective and Efficient
Multidimensional Aggregate Queries over Key-Value Stores

This presentation introduces BigMDHealth, a composite framework for sup-porting multidimensional big data management and analytics over big healthcare data. BigMDHealth adheres to the innovative paradigm that predi-cates engrafting multidimensionality into big data analytics processes. At a proper algorithmic layer, BigMDHealth focuses the attention on the issue of supporting multidimensional aggregate queries over key-value stores, as a fundamental op-erator of the main multidimensional big data management and analytics paradigm predicated by the framework.
