BIG DATA – Massive, Variable, Continuous
BIG DATA is the term to learn this week. Shawn Rogers, Vice President of Research, Business Intelligence at EMA, delivered an excellent presentation on BIG DATA at last Friday’s TDWI quarterly meeting, sponsored by SherlockTech. This graphic summed up the definition for me quite well. Massive quantities of unstructured data originating from variable location on a continual basis.
Thanks again to Shawn for giving us permission to reproduce his graphic, the complete presentation is available here. You can find out more about Shawn at his Blog
