Overview of United State Postal Service discussion on big data. Topics of discussion revealed that there is no single, unified definition of big data. Three criteria, or “3V’s,” seem to characterize big data: its volume, makeing it difficult to store and process, the velocity at which it is produced, and the variety of data sources, both structured and unstructured, ranging from databases to tweets. All participants agreed that the potential of big data is enormous; but the right business model for postal operators to fully harness the power of big data is still unfolding.
