Level:  Intermediate

This tutorial presents the trending shift from Big Data to Smart, Thing, Augmented, and Relevant (STAR) Data and discusses the anatomy of the STAR Data (5W+1H). The concept of Big Data is still linked with the 3Vs model defined in 2001. A number of products have been incubated and matured in the last 15 years to process large data sets, so that bigness has no longer become the only pressing problem. This presentation investigates the imperatives to make the paradigm shift to other core issues in today’s data world and pinpoints the trending of the top concerns in the new era: Smart, Thing, Augmented, and Relevant (STAR) Data.

We anatomize the STAR Data in a multi-dimensional way: What, Why, Where, Who, When and How (5W+1H), addressing the concepts, rationales, use cases, players, timing, and technology enablement. Further, we discuss the best practices of Convert, Condense, Converge, and Convince (C4) as the interdisciplinary guidelines for implementing real-life STAR Data projects. Working examples and use cases will be articulated, along with the technology enablement, during the session.
