Along with the rise of big data the question about quality of big data and the importance of taking data quality into consideration when analyzing big data is raised again and again.
We had a poll in the LinkedIn Big Data Quality group. The results are as shown below:
So, some people consider data quality to be more important for big data than for small data (the data we have analyzed until the rise of big data), some people consider data quality to be less important with big data, but the majority of people who voted (included yours truly), consider the quality of big data to be equally important as it has been with small data.
As expressed in some comments voting “the same” is often an aggregate of some things that are more important and other things that are less important.
