- big data (1): Big Data is often described as extremely large data sets that have grown beyond the ability to manage and analyze them with traditional data processing tools. . . . Big Data defines a situation in which data sets have grown to such enormous sizes that conventional information technologies can no longer effectively handle either the size of the data set or the scale and growth of the data set. . . . The primary difficulties are the acquisition, storage, searching, sharing, analytics, and visualization of data. (†284)
