Abstract

For many years now, the domain of big data has received lots of attention, as numerous studies, reports, and research articles reveal. Up to this date, a multitude of different definitions, guidelines, technologies, architectures, and best practices appeared that were supposed to provide clarity in the jungle of existing solutions. Instead, it led to further confusion regarding the general nature and the applicability of big data. To overcome those obstacles in detail, in the following, a thorough description of the term big data. To elucidate those obstacles, in the following, some of the most important aspects regarding the terminology as well as the essence of big data as a concept are discussed. Hereby, subsequent researchers as well as practitioners interested in the domain are provided with a strong base that further considerations and future projects can be built upon. This, in turn, hopefully helps to facilitate the progression of the domain as a whole as well as its further proliferation.
