Data mining has become indispensable in the wake of ever-growing data in enterprises. The IT departments of organizations have their data mining services. However, the size of data is increased exponentially in such a way that the existing mining algorithms are inadequate to handle such data. The rationale behind this is that the data has become big data with characteristics like volume, variety and velocity. The big data needs to be handled in a distributed environment. Such environment is provided by cloud computing with its rich pool of computing resources. Therefore it is important to understand the dynamics of big data and mining of big data. Aligning IT wings of organizations to handle big data and perform mining on the big data is time consuming and needs investment. For this reason, it is desirable to have a mining service in cloud that can cater to the needs of organizations at an affordable price. This is actually a paradigm shift in thinking of obtaining business intelligence required by organizations. Towards this end this paper reviews literature and provides useful insights that can help in comprehending the present state-of-the-art on big data and possibility of mining service in cloud computing.
