Veracity of Big Data


Topics on Big Data are growing rapidly. From the first 3 V’s that originally characterized Big Data, the industry now has identified 42 V’s associated with Big Data. The list of how we characterize Big Data and what we can do with it will only grow with time. Veracity is often referred to as the 4th V of Big Data. The fact that it is the first V after the notion of Big Data emerged indicates how significant the topic of Veracity is to the evolution of Big Data. Indeed, the quality of data is fundamental to its use. We may build many advanced tools to harness Big Data, but if the quality of the data is not to the mark, the applications will not be of much use. Veracity is a foundation block of data and, in fact, the human civilization.
