“Big data” has jumped the shark

I’m apparently not the only one having difficulties succinctly defining what Big Data is – let alone is there agreement in the industry, as to what the Big Data category should or should not include, as seen in Monash’s latest rambling “Big data” has jumped the shark. Over time Big Data as a term will likely either start to mean everything involving a lot of data (in anybody’s definition of “a lot”), or be replaced with a better term.
