Data systems are the technology that stores, collects and gives access to information that organizations use. Data systems may include the database system (DBMS), warehouses special platforms, such as NoSQL databases, and alternative data storage models such as cloud object services. They could also include master data management, which creates an organization’s common set of reference information for its clients, products and other assets.

Volume, variety, and velocity are the most important features of a data management system. Volume refers to the amount of data being processed usually in large and complex data sets that can’t be handled by a single computer. Variety refers to the different kinds of data that are gathered, from traditional sensors such as social media feeds, sensors and other sources. Velocity refers to the speed at which data is transferred through and out of the data system.

These four characteristics have spurred the development of innovative and new data systems. Alongside the traditional databases and DBMS technologies, there are now new data platforms that can handle a large range of data.

A big sensor data system, for example it is a collection of devices and sensors that collect an array of data from physical devices such as smartphones and wearable medical sensors. The readings from sensors can contain location, signal or image information, as well as timestamps. The data is then saved on the device and sent to the central server. The data then undergoes preprocessing to ensure that the resulting data is clean and meaningful for analysis and processing.
