A conclusion of a recent symposium comes to:

Andy Powell concluded the day with a few challenges for the next generation of ‘Big Data Scientists‘. No t all data which is big is Big Data; in other words, a large, fast or varying amount of data does not necessarily present a Big Data problem. Secondly, there seems to be confusion about whether dealing with Big Data involves curation, management or analysis – whilst purists would emphasise the latter element, many speakers called for best practice in the first two categories.”
