What's Big Data?
The term of Big Data stands for the challenge (opportunity?) to collect, organize and analyze new types of data: i.e.,
- a bigger dataset (volume)
- a more varied dataset such as pictures or speech (variety)
- often combined with a faster data requirement (velocity) and
- a higher importance of accuracy (veracity).
These terms (the 4 Vs) jointly coin the term Big Data.
