Big data refers to the large volumes of historically unstructured information held by organisations.


Big data technology enables this information to interrogated to produce more useful summarised and selected information and analysis.

For example, anti-fraud technology in banks, to analyse how often bank customers log into their account, where they usually log in from, and how quickly they type in their user name and password.
