Some advantages should we face analyzing Small Data versus Big data.
|Properties||BIG DATA (comunities)||SMALL DATA from wearables/person|
|VOLUMEN||Terabytes to Pentabytes||Megabytes.|
|VARIETY||Data in many forms (structured, unstructured, text, multimedia)||Structured and/or multimedia|
|VELOCITY||Mostly data stored & pre-procesed.||Data in motion (streaming data to make decision in accordance)|
|VERACITY||Data uncertainty ( reliability & predictability of imprecise data types)||Data certain, coming from one user and one device (range limited and data correlated)|
Velocity is therefore the only bottle -neck and parallel processing for one or several devices/person that have to be correlated an essential demand.
But as we defined Small Data belongs to the user and he/she is the one that could allow to share part or some for a specific reason. Not a minor issue considering that this data is now demanded in court trials.
