Big Data

Big Data is data that is too large for standard analytical techniques, accumulates too quickly, has too much variety, is subject to too many errors or is generally outside of standard analytical techniques and require new forms of technology or analysis to make meaning from the data set. Big Data has also been defined as whatever data is too big for you to handle, exemplifying the relative nature of the topic.
