*"Big Data" refers to the sharp increase of the size, arrival rate and complexity of data that is being generated and collected by business, government and other organizations. In the coming years it will affect many people across most disciplines. The rapid increase in data will also bring a variety of challenges including data storage, data management and data preservation. “Data Analytics” is the name of the academic area that studies “Big Data.”
