Big data, generally defined as voluminous datasets that cannot be processed by traditional information technology within a tolerable time, is increasingly used by both industry personnel and academic researchers to examine various trends that can support and/or challenge wider assumptions. The benefits of analyzing big data rests in its ability to consolidate an enormous amount of data resulting in more accurate predictions. Despite its various benefits, big data presents many challenges to both its participants and users. This chapter will examine the benefits and concerns of big data, beginning with an introduction of big data and its defining characteristics. Then, we consider how big data is used by both industry and academic researchers. The chapter will conclude with a discussion on the risks and implications posed by using big data.
