BigQuery is Google Cloud Platform's fully managed data warehouse which let you sparingly query substantial volumes of data at speed anyone can expect from Google. It provides Pay as you go strategy which offers Google’s pricing benefits and the scalability and security of Google's world-class infrastructure to boost your business visions.
Following are some of the useful features of BigQuery:
GCP that is Google cloud platform excels the industry in the ability to let you analyze data at the scale of the entire web, with the awareness of SQL and in a fully managed, serverless architecture where backend infrastructure is fully handled on behalf of you. One of the wonderful features of Google's big data analytics products is that they are able to scale automatically while you focus only on the business insight you want to uncover.
BigQuery is Cloud Platform's fully managed data warehouse that lets you frugally query massive volumes of data at a speed which anyone would expect from Google.

Google Cloud has Dataflow which is an innovative, fully managed service for developing and executing a huge range of data processing patterns which includes ETL, batch computation, and stream analytics. You can express your computation with no switching cost as you use a single tool and programming model for both batch and continuous stream processing flows.
Nowadays companies are standardizing on abundant open source tools which include Spark, Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive, and Pig, but this will soon see a natural transition to Cloud Dataproc. One reason for this would be while using Dataproc you should not worry about your data pipelines outgrowing clusters as it allows you to create and resize clusters quickly at any given point in time.
Specific business questions which you may encounter in the future cannot be predicted in prior but can be solved if you have relevant data in hand when they occur. One should always preserve events and valuable metadata related to your business environment, by storing it economically to analyze later. You can choose from a variety of globally available storage products for your data, from managed SQL to NoSQL options, including Google's category-defining archival product.
In today's era, most of the companies are shifting towards big data analytics. Companies are willing to apply Google's heritage of machine learning and analytics at web-scale to real-world data relevant to their business. Cloud Platform enables modest-sized teams to aggregate and run machine learning workloads on a huge amount of data to do predictive analytics.
Google has excelled the industry with innovations in data science technologies such as MapReduce, BigTable, and Dremel and now Google is making the latest generation of its data science tools available to everyone, including market-leading programming tools and programming models.
BigQuery provides the query results in a few seconds even if your data size is in Terabytes. After knowing the amazing features of Bigquery listed above, one would definitely like to register for its free trial. So to start with Bigquery follow the following steps:

To query the database you should follow the following steps
EUmulti-region location. When your data is in the
EU, the processing location is automatically detected.
Now let's learn how we can run interactive and batch queries.
Mainly BigQuery runs interactive queries by default, which means that the query is executed as soon as possible. Interactive queries are counted towards your concurrent rate limit and also your daily limit.
The results of queries are always saved to either a temporary or a permanent table. It is always your choice to decide whether to append or overwrite data in an existing table or to create a completely new table if none exists by that name.
To run any interactive query which writes to a temporary table, we should follow the following steps:
BigQuery also provides batch queries. BigQuery queues each batch query on your behalf and starts the query as soon as idle resources are available, usually, such resources are available within a few minutes. If BigQuery does not start the query within 24 hours, it changes the job priority to interactive. Batch queries don't count towards your concurrent rate limit, which can make it easier to start many queries at once.
To run batch query we should follow the following steps:
