Big Data

This Technology Watch report looks at different examples and applications associated with the big data paradigm, identifies commonalities among them by describing their characteristics, and highlights some of the technologies enabling the upsurge of big data. As with many emerging technologies, several challenges need to be identified and addressed to facilitate the adoption of big data solutions in a wider range of scenarios. Big data standardization activities related to the ITU-T work programme are described in the final section of this report.​​
