Is Big Data a buzzword with no clear definition? Wikipedia defines Big Data as...
...a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications...
13 More Definitions of Big Data
Here is a collection of 13 (unlucky?) other definitions of "Big Data" - from analyst firms, from government organizations, from technology publication and from technology vendors.
...is defined as high volume, velocity and variety information assets that demand cost-effective, innovative forms of information processing for enhanced insight and decision making...
...is the frontier of a firm's ability to store, process, and access (SPA) all the data it needs to operate effectively, make decisions, reduce risks, and serve customers...
…is data that exceeds the processing capacity of conventional database systems…
4. IDC (picked from Mary Ludloff’s blog)
…describe a new generation of technologies and architectures, designed to economically extract value from very large volumes of a wide variety of data, by enabling high-velocity capture, discovery, and/or analysis…
…is a term that describes large volumes of high velocity, complex, and variable data that require advanced techniques and technologies to enable the capture, storage, distribution, management, and analysis of the information…
…is where the data volume, acquisition velocity, or data representation limits the ability to perform effective analysis using traditional relational approaches or requires the use of significant horizontal scaling for efficient processing…
7. PC Mag
…is the massive amounts of data that collect over time that are difficult to analyze and handle using common database management tools…
…is a general term used to describe the voluminous amount of unstructured and semi-structured data a company creates — data that would take too much time and cost too much money to load into a relational database for analysis…
…is, Ill-defined, Intimidating, Immediate…
…is a buzzword, or catch-phrase, used to describe a massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large that it’s difficult to process using traditional database and software techniques…
…is fundamentally about massively parallel processing using commodity building blocks to manage and analyze the data…
…is Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity…
…any amount of data that’s too big to be handled by one computer…
Looks like there IS a clear consensus!
Big Data is data which cannot be handled by traditional technologies
Whether it is useful, usable, meaningful … that is a different question.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
