In three years, the term ‘big data’ will disappear: Teradata CTO

Many organisations are getting ready for big data, yet it is not the volume of data that they should be mindful of, but rather the diversity of data. “I think many still don’t fully understand what the notion of big data really entails,” said Teradata Corporation chief technology officer Stephen Brobst, noting that when most people think of “big data” and its challenges, they think of the high volumes of data generated but not the diversity. Big data refers to the vast amounts of “unstructured” data that comes from the Web, including social media, as well as forms of data that cannot fit into traditional databases.
