Description

This slide deck, by Big Data guru Bernard Marr, outlines the 5 Vs of big data. It describes in simple language what big data is, in terms of Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity and Value.

To get a better understanding of what Big Data is, it is often described using Five Vs: Variety Volume Velocity Veracity Value 2 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd. All rights reserved.

We see increasing volumes of data, that grow at exponential rates: Variety Volume Velocity Veracity Value Volume refers to the vast amounts of data generated every second. We are not talking Terabytes but Zettabytes or Brontobytes. If we take all the data generated in the world between the beginning of time and 2008, the same amount of data will soon be generated every minute. This makes most data sets too large to store and analyse using traditional database technology. New big data tools use distributed systems so that we can store and analyse data across databases that are dotted around anywhere in the world. 3 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd.

We see increasing velocity (or speed) at which data changes, travels or increases Variety Volume Velocity Veracity Value Velocity refers to the speed at which new data is generated and the speed at which data moves around. Just think of social media messages going viral in seconds. Technology allows us now to analyse the data while it is being generated (sometimes referred to as inmemory analytics), without ever putting it into databases. 4 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd.

We see increasing variety of data types: Variety Volume Veracity Velocity Value Variety refers to the different types of data we can now use. In the past we only focused on structured data that neatly fitted into tables or relational databases, such as financial data. In fact, 80% of the world’s data is unstructured (text, images, video, voice, etc.) With big data technology we can now analyse and bring together data of different types such as messages, social media conversations, photos, sensor data, video or voice recordings. 5 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd.

We see increasing veracity (or accuracy) of data Variety Volume Velocity Veracity Value Veracity refers to the messiness or trustworthiness of the data. With many forms of big data quality and accuracy are less controllable (just think of Twitter posts with hash tags, abbreviations, typos and colloquial speech as well as the reliability and accuracy of content) but technology now allows us to work with this type of data. 6 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd.

Value – The most important V of all! Variety Volume Velocity Veracity Value Then there is another V to take into account when looking at Big Data: Value! Having access to big data is no good unless we can turn it into value. Companies are starting to generate amazing value from their big data. See some examples here. 7 © 2014 Advanced Performance Institute, BWMC Ltd. All rights reserved.
