What is Big Data?

Big data is a combination of structured, semi structured, and unstructured data collected by organizations that can be mined for information and used in machine learning projects, predictive modelling and other advanced analytics applications. Systems that process and store big data have become a common component of data management architectures in organizations. Big data is often characterized by the 3Vs: the large volume of data in many environments, the wide variety of data types stored in big data systems and the velocity at which the data is generated, collected and processed. These characteristics were first identified by Doug Laney, then an analyst at Meta Group Inc., in 2001; Gartner further popularized them after it acquired Meta Group in 2005. More recently, several other Vs have been added to different descriptions of big data, including veracity, value and variability. Although big data doesn’t equate to any specific volume of data, big data deployments often involve terabytes (TB), petabytes (PB) and even exabytes (EB) of data captured over time.

Open source Hadoop distributed processing technologies have made it practical and affordable to perform computations on big data resources like web server log files, call data records, sensor logs, photographic archives, and social media content. IT shops still face a steep challenge in operationalizing big data, ideally in the form of reusable big data services that can be called as needed by systems and applications across the enterprise.
