3 V’s of Big data

Big data spans three dimensions: Variety, Velocity and Volume.

Variety – Big data extends beyond structured data, including unstructured data of all varieties: text, audio, video, click streams, log files and more.

Velocity – Often time-sensitive, big data must be used as it is streaming in to the enterprise in order to maximize its value to the business.

Volume – Big data comes in one size: large. Enterprises are awash with data, easily amassing terabytes and even petabytes of information.
