BackWhat is Big Data?Big data spans three dimensions: Volume, Velocity, Variety Big data is a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications. The challenges include capture, curation, storage, search, sharing, analysis and visualization •Volume: Enterprises are awash with ever-growing data of all types, easily amassing terabytes, even petabytes of information •Turn 12 terabytes of Tweets created each day into improved product sentiment analysis •Convert 350 billion annual meter readings to better predict power consumption •Velocity: Sometimes 2 minutes is too late. For time-sensitive processes such as catching fraud, big data must be used as it streams into your enterprise in order to maximize its value •Scrutinize 5 million trade events created each day to identify potential fraud •Analyze 500 million daily call detail records in real-time to predict customer churn faster •Variety: Big data is any type of data - structured and unstructured data such as text, sensor data, audio, video, click streams, log files and more. New insights are found when analyzing these data types together •Monitor 100’s of live video feeds from surveillance cameras to target points of interest12 •Exploit the 80% data growth in images, video and documents to improve customer satisfaction
BackWhat is Unstructured Data?80% of all potentially usable business information originates in unstructured form Unstructured Data refers to information that either does not have a pre-defined data model and/or does not fit well into relational tables •Unstructured data is typically text-heavy, but may contain data such as dates, numbers, and facts as well • This results in irregularities and ambiguities that make it difficult to understand using traditional computer programs as compared to data stored in fielded form in databases •In 1998, Merrill Lynch cited estimates that as much as 80% of all potentially usable business information originates in unstructured form • More recently, multiple analysts have estimated that data will grow 800% over the next five years •Unstructured information accounts for more than 70%–80% of all data in organizations and is growing 10–50x more than structured data13
