Big Data & Smart Data – What does that really mean?

Big Data erklärt

While Big Data is seen as the result of the advances achieved in the digitalization of previous analog data sources as well as the emergence of new digital data sources, e.g., from new sensor technologies, Smart Data refers to the economic and social value added from the rapidly growing mountains of digital data in all areas of life. Beyond a consideration of the technologies required for data management and data analysis, the legal and social framework conditions must also be taken into account.
