In 2001, the analyst firm MetaGroup (now Gartner) introduced us to the 3Vs of 3D Data: Volume, Velocity and Variety. Fifteen years on, Big Data is now on everyone's priority list. It continues to be an area of very active research and development across every portion of the telecom ecosystem. Updates and announcements of new products and solutions occur on an almost weekly basis, and organizations are still trying to get their arms around these three Vs.
Over the past few years, two new Vs—Value and Veracity—have entered the equation, making the Big Data ecosystem even more complex, and more important to solve.
