Big Data Analytics

All Glossary Terms

Big Data Analytics is a new set of data analysis methods that enable the examination of large, often complex sets of raw data. Unlike traditional analytics, which were generally optimized around small volumes of relationally structured data, big data analytics methods are designed to handle vast quantities of complex unstructured data, such as data emerging from the Internet of Things (IoT). Large volumes of data coming from varying sources in different formats means that data quality maintenance is difficult to achieve in big data analytics without specialized tools.
