 “Big Data is a term that describes large volumes of high velocity, complex and variable data that require advanced techniques and technologies to enable the capture, storage, distribution, management, and analysis of the information.” Many authors adhere to the “Four Vs definition” that points to the four characteristics of Big Data, namely Volume (the amount of data), Variety (different types of data and data sources), Velocity (data in motion) and Veracity (data uncertainty).
