  1. Businesses need to be able to isolate the specific areas within their repository of big data that are the most important to their business objectives. It is impossible to analyze it all. Business technical leaders need to plan ahead and be strategic in their treatment of large volumes of data to be efficient.

  2. Unfortunate that your sources fail to include the original source of the “3Vs” used to define Big Data: the 12 year-old piece on “3D Data Management Challenges” I wrote at Gartner (then META) in 2001. Here’s a reference, for the professional courtesy of proper citation: Also note that while other’s “cleverly” have posited additional “V”s unfortunately they are not definitional, and only serve to confuse people. Veracity for example is an important quality of *all* data, but it does not define big data and in fact is inversely related to volume, velocity and variety. –Doug Laney, VP Research, Gartner, @doug_laney

  3. doug_laney – Thanks for the insight regarding the original source. The crew at where the infographic was discovered should certainly include you as an original source.  Unfortunately it does not appear listed.
