Portability, Usability, Quality: The Three ‘ilities’ of Big Data

Sep 04, 2013

When talking about Big Data, most people talk about numbers: speed of processing and how many terabytes and petabytes the platform can handle. But deriving deep insights with the potential to change business growth trajectories relies not just on quantities, processing power and speed, but also three key ilities: portability, usability and quality of the data.

Portability, usability, and quality converge to define how well the processing power of the Big Data platform can be harnessed to deliver consistent, high quality, dependable and predictable enterprise-grade insights.

Portability: Ability to transport data and insights in and out of the system

Usability: Ability to use the system to hypothesize, collaborate, analyze, and ultimately to derive insights from data

Quality: Ability to produce highly reliable and trustworthy insights from the system
