Big Data is not just a big buzzword. Government agencies have been collecting large amounts of data for some time and analyzing the data collected to one degree or another. Big data is a term that describes high volume, variety and velocity of information that inundates an organization on a regular basis. But itís not the amount of data thatís important. Itís what organizations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analyzed for insights that lead to better decisions and better services.
