Challenges include capture, storage, analysis, data curation, search, sharing, transfer, visualisation, querying, updating, and information privacy. The term big data often refers simply to the use of predictive analytics, user behaviour analytics, or certain other advanced data analytics methods that extract value from data, and rarely to a particular size of data set.
