The Role of Big Data Analytics in Insurance

Big Data encompasses large amounts of aggregated data that combines structured data models and relational databases with unstructured data, like text and images. Information from sources like radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, which are in cars, computer equipment, smartphones, and other devices, can serve as a trove of information that can quickly grow into a conglomerate-hence the name “Big Data.” Many companies’ IT infrastructures were not built to anticipate such an amount of information and without a means to access and properly integrate the data, some businesses have since lowered its priority.
