Big Data & Analytics

Big Data

A popular term used to describe the exponential growth and availability of data, both structured and unstructured. This Big Data may be important for business and society – more data may lead to more accurate analyses. In 2001, industry analyst Doug Laney articulated the now mainstream definition of big data as the three Vs of big data:

  • Volume – How much of structured & unstructured data from multiple sources
  • Velocity – Streaming data at unprecedented speeds
  • Variety – Unstructured data from text documents, email, video, audio, stock-ticker data and financial transactions

Analytics

The real issue is not that you are acquiring large amounts of data. It's what you do with this Big Data that counts. The hopeful vision is that organizations will be able to take data from any source, harness relevant data and analyze it to find answers that enable:

1. Cost & Time reductions
2. Predicting future trends
3. Preventing issues
4. New product development and optimized offerings
5. Smarter business decision making
